BLACK AND BROWN UNITY YESTERDAY…AND TOMORROW?
What can we learn from those who were active in the 1960s as organizers and revolutionaries?
How can we apply these lessons to the organizing that’s going on now?
Join us for a conversation with organizers from the 1960s who are still active today, for discussions on how to build unity between black and brown people, while struggling against capitalism, white supremacy, patriarchy and homophobia.
