Voices of the Movement: Black Activism and Organizing for Change

WBEZ / Vocalo FB Live

Event info
Date: June 23, 2020
Time: 12:00 am
Location: WBEZ / Vocalo FB Live

In the wake of recent local and national protests against police brutality and systemic racism, Chicagoland activists are shining a light on racial injustices that African Americans face.

Join WBEZ Chicago and Vocalo Radio for a community discussion about the power of black activism and its evolution in Chicago. The conversation will be led by Vocalo’s Jill Hopkins and will feature an intergenerational panel of black activists. Discussion topics will focus on the historical fight for racial equity in Chicago, the power of organizing, short and long term strategies for this movement, and how non-blacks can work to achieve racial justice.

During the discussion viewers will have the opportunity to ask panelists questions.
