Perspectives on The Black Lives Matter Movement from Diverse, Multi-Generational Black Voices
Dr. Price Cobbs was a prolific voice for racial justice in this country and beyond. His first book Black Rage published just after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr was assassinated in 1968 is a seminal piece on the ramifications of racism in America.
In honor of Dr. Cobbs legacy, The Inclusion Allies Coalition will host a virtual session on September 24, from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT, Perspectives on The Black Lives Matter Movement from Diverse, Multi-generational Black Voices. Four distinguished panelists will reflect on America’s troubled racial history and correlate it to today’s Black Lives Matter Movement.
We will explore questions like:
- Why don’t black lives seem to matter more?
- What has/has not changed since Dr. Cobbs wrote Black Rage in 1968? Why/why not?
- Why is there such an aversion to having meaningful dialogue about our fractured race relations?
- Where is the hope?
