CIVIL RIGHTS TO BLACK LIVES MATTER

This is Everybody's Movement

This workshop offers a literary space for civil rights veterans of the 1960’s and young activists of today, to write and share their personal stories, lessons learned and visions and prescriptions for transformative social change.  New writers are invited to join this ongoing workshop, founded to engage activist elders in writing side by side with young people coming up through Black Lives Matter.  Join former sharecroppers, student activists, immigrant human rights and philanthropic leaders from Long Island, South Carolina, Arkansas, Washington DC, Maryland, New York City, Minnesota, California and more, to develop a story-based strategy around the work that transformed the nation, and our lives, that continues to redefine America today.

Mondays 7:00-9:00 pm EDT via ZOOM
