Global Village Plenary: A Global Perspective on Black Lives Matter

Global Village Plenary: A Global Perspective on Black Lives Matter

Monday, March 7, 2016 -
7:15pm to 8:35pm

Join New York-based anti-racist organizer and an instructor at the Institute for Social Ecology, Negesti Cantave, as she traces the history of African-American social justice and civil rights organizing to give a background to Black Lives Matter. As a queer thinker and organizer with a strong feminist and global perspective, Cantave will show the roles of women's involvement and global connection in the Black struggle in the US, perspectives that are often marginalized.

This event is sponsored by the Douglass Global Village, and co-sponsored by the Paul Robeson Cultural Center, the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities, the Council of Black Grads, and the Institute for Research on Women. The event is free and open to the public.
