Tonight we are honored to partner with the Schomburg Center to present “In the Tradition: An Intergenerational Dialogue on Progressive Activism and Black America,” a dialogue between Harry Belafonte and Melissa Harris-Perry.
They will discuss the tradition of black activism, the role of activist intellectuals, the critical lessons of past movements and the challenges of organizing in the twenty-first century. How has the landscape for social justice become more complicated? What are the responsibilities of the black community to its advocates in times of attack?
