Film & Discussion Series: An Interview with the Founders of Black Lives Matter

Tuesday, September 26, 2017

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us for the next event in this ongoing film and discussion series that may educate you, touch your heart, and inspire you to action to help dismantle racism.

This is an inspiring and insightful video with three brilliant African American leaders – filled with wisdom and thought provoking ideas. “Black Lives Matter is a tool to re-imagine the world. It is a tool for our allies to show up differently for us.” They discuss the movement, how change can happen, climate justice, leadership, interdependence, immigrants, how to take action, and hope. This video is for everyone. We will discuss it in light of Charlottesville and other recent events.

We will also meet in small working groups to advance our anti-racism action projects:
  • Climate Change-Racism Connections (new group)
  • Schools Initiative
  • Legislative Initiative
  • Support for individual actions and conversations (new group)
Free & open to the public.

Co-sponsored by the Jones Library and Coming Together.
