Martin Luther King Jr. Day Panel -- The Black Liberation Movement: Letters from a Birmingham Jail to Black Lives Matter
C + V Community Talk in partnership with DU Heritage Months Initiative
The resistance to slavery and the Transatlantic Slave trade began at the very instant that Africans were first enslaved by colonizing forces from western Europe. The movement advancing the liberation of Black people has taken various forms over the centuries. From the everyday acts of resistance by enslaved people to the organized underground railroad; from the “Turn around Tuesday” to “Black Lives Matter”; generations of Black activists have staunchly advanced the ideal of human rights for all despite pervasive racism and systemic oppression.
In this panel we bring together three generations of Black scholars, thinkers and activists to reflect on the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King Jnr. and the continued struggle for Black Liberation.
