Join us on Zoom for a presentation by one of the original members and an on-the-ground organizer of the #BlackLivesMatter global network, offering a political history of the movement as a point in Black freedom struggle. Through personal narrative and movement analysis, this conversation presents the vision and hope for the movement as well as its approach and tactics while also providing tangible ways to plug in to the work.
