Join us for this important discussion with experts and activists working on a daily basis to educate, organize and liberate the working class and oppressed peoples locally, nationally and globally.
There is a concerted attack on African and African American scholarship and literature represented by state legislatures banning the teaching of the actual history of the United States and the world.
What are these opponents of antiracist education afraid of? What implications are there for the further erosion of democratic rights and the escalation of state repression and imperialist war? Join us for discussions around these important questions.
