We Must Act: Black and Indigenous Freedom Dreaming Community Forum
Sat, February 15, 2020 1:00 P.M.
Lucien E. Blackwell West Philadelphia Regional Library
At this One Book forum co-presented by Indigenous 215 and Paul Robeson House and Museum, Black and Native activists will reflect on the local history of relationships between Black liberation and Native sovereignty movements on the Lenape land we now occupy. Discussion will explore how the structure of settler colonialism, including its entanglement with anti-Black racism, continues to produce harmful outcomes for Black and Native peoples throughout the continent of Turtle Island. Guided by Tommy Orange’s novel, There There, we will set forth the challenge of what it means to live a life that is answerable to these present conditions in order to incubate a world where Black and Native peoples can thrive.
