FUTURE GABFESTOn May 24th we invite you to a special Gabfest on “The New Jim Crow” book on racially biased incarceration of black and brown people.
Dr. Michael Lyde * will facilitate this important enlightenment session starting with a timeline on the transition from slavery to the civil rights to the current prison industrial complex. This will be followed by a group discussion on the questions:
Why were we all asleep as the “New Jim Crow” developed.
What can we as do to educate ourselves and adress this problem.
A limited number of copies of this outstanding book are available from BWMTSC.
We are looking for volunteers to read sections, or the entirety of the book and offer their perspectives at the meeting. We ask for a donation of $10 for each book to defer the cost of procuring the book. If interested please email: Ken Scott Baron.
Black and White Men Together of Southern California is committed to fighting racism and this Gabfest is an important step towards that goal.
The Gabfest is held the 4th Saturday of each month at 5:30 pm at the Utitarian Universalist Church, 5450 East Atherton Street, Long Beach, CA 90815. UUCLB is a LGBTQ affirming congregation with 100 years of social action and are proud sponsors of BWMTSC.
