Call and Response: Black Power 50 Years Later
Jun 14, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| $5.00
In June 1966, the call for Black Power in America was declared by Stokely Carmichael and Willie Ricks after the shooting of James Meredith in Mississippi. This call was heard across the nation and sparked a movement whose legacy continues fifty years later. Professor Robyn Spencer leads a conversation with activists from across generations. Panelists, including Rev. Dr. Herbert Daughtry, Basir Mchawi, Farah Tanis, DeRay Mckesson, and Dante Barry reflect on the evolution from Black Power to Black Lives Matter.
