Alicia Garza: The Purpose of Power Book Event (in conversation with Patrisse Cullors)
Time & Location
About the Event
How to actually change things in a lasting, sustained way takes knowing and acting in the moment, but also study, intention, learning, communicating, and working with others. Five years ago, writing a social media post in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, evoked a global response. Alicia Garza, with two other women, began what would become known then and since as #BlackLivesMatter, a force that’s been unique in all this country’s history where injustice is concerned, and how that is contested. Alicia Garza today is the principal at the Black Futures Lab (WWW.BLACKFUTURESLAB.ORG) and the Black to the Future Action Fund (WWW.BLACK2THEFUTURE.ORG), is director of strategy and partnerships at the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and host of the Lady Don’t Take No podcast. She is also author of one of the vital, necessary books of this time - and beyond - The Purpose of Power: How We Come Together When We Fall Apart (One World).
