A reflective and participatory conversation about community, diversity and our own radical ideal of-and commitment to-social justice for the future of Brooklyn. Old Stone House & Washington Park's Maggie Weber will present a brief overview of Brooklyn's racial justice movement from the 17th Century to the present, including Brooklyn's past as the highest slave-holding state in the Northern colonies, and 18th century debates about slavery and black oppression. We'll follow with remarks from social activist Darnell L. Moore, a powerful speaker at The Brooklyn Cottage's Jan 21st event, After Ferguson: Where Do We Go From Here? And we'll conclude with an experiential exercise led by The Brooklyn Cottage's Jenny Douglas designed to get us reflecting, with honesty, on race as a social construct and our own participation in it.See more free New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
