Description

With the rise of movements like #BlackLivesMatter and the ongoing outcries against voter suppression and social injustice, public understanding of the history of black civic engagement is more important than ever. Civil Rights 2.0: What Is New And What We Can Learn From The Archives? features a moderated discussion led by journalist-author Charlayne Hunter-Gault, known for her integration of the University of Georgia at the age of eighteen. The panel participants feature some of the most prominent activists and thought leaders of today—each of whose work is grounded in strong historical frameworks of previous African American led movements. Join NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson, Color Of Change President Rashad Robinson, and the President of the Akonadi Foundation Lateefah Simon, as they explore this fascinating history, how much of it is known and preserved, its impact, where we are now, and where our future may lead us. A Q&A session with questions from The HistoryMakers CivicMakers Advisory Committee will follow the moderated discussion.

The 90-minute program is scheduled to stream on YouTube and Facebook Live at 12:00 noon EST on Friday, December 4, 2020 as the fourth installment of The HistoryMakers 20@2020: 20 Days and 20 Nights Convening and Celebration.
