Three events for Black History Month in Georgia co-sponsored by the Green Party:
"Black Liberation and Palestine Solidarity"
a community discussion and book talk with the authors Lenni Brenner and Matthew Quest.
*Black Liberation and Palestine Solidarity * is a collection of selected essays investigating the historical response of African American freedom movements to the colonial settler state of Israel and its role in American imperialism in the Middle East. Through nuanced discussions of racism, capitalism, imperialism, and state power, these writings help to clarify one of the most controversial legacies of Black liberation in the United States.
All events are FREE and OPEN to the public.
