DC Black History Month Community Forum: A New Generation Revisits the Black Radical Tradition

February 26, 2016 at 7pm - 10pm

The Black liberation movement and its fight for freedom is intensifying in the face of racist police terror, mass incarceration, gentrification and job discrimination. Earlier this year in Philadelphia, a conference titled "Reclaiming our Future: The Black Radical Tradition in our Time" took place, bringing together leading Black radical intellectuals, activists, artists, pastors and thinkers from from the 1960s and 1970s to the present-day Black Lives Matter movement. The conference raised socialism as the clear alternative to the capitalist system.

Join us for a presentation and discussion. The Meeting will feature:
- An exciting report back from the Black Radical Tradition Conference
- The often-suppressed history of Black radical leadership in the freedom struggle
- How necessary it is to revive this legacy today in the face of continuing police terror, mass incarceration, job discrimination and environmental racism
- Can Black liberation be won under capitalism?
