Free Food For Thought - Fall 2013

Solidarity of Social Justice: Seneca Falls, Selma, & Stonewall

Session 5: Involve to Evolve

Using historical movements for justice and equality for perspective, we will examine and discuss how to organize for sustainable and transformative change on college campuses and in our communities. We will also discuss what it means to be an ally.


Seneca Falls (1848), the upstate New York site of the first women’s-rights convention, Selma (1965), the Alabama city where police brutally attacked peaceful civil-rights marchers, and Stonewall (1969) the Greenwich Village bar where riotous resistance to a police raid spawned the modern gay-rights movement — will be remembered as turning points as three of the most impactful social revolutions in our nation’s history.

 

The Free Food For Thought fall 2013 series focuses on the commonalities and differences that exist between these three events that aided in the shift from single occurrences to social movements for change. Conversations will focus on the intersection of social identities of the people involved in each of these movements. We will examine and discuss how Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall created a foundation for current global movements for justice and equality.
