Event Details

The Schomburg Center is proud to present "In the Tradition: An Intergenerational Dialogue on Progressive Activism and Black America," a dialogue between actor, author, and activist Harry Belafonte and Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, Professor of Political Science at Tulane University, MSNBC Host and author of Sister Citizen: Shame, Stereotypes, and Black Women in America on the tradition of black activism, the role of activist intellectuals, the critical lessons of past movements and the challenges of organizing in the twenty-first century. How has the landscape for social justice become more complicated? What are the responsibilities of the black community to its advocates in times of attack?

Join us for an enlightening conversation to be moderated by Dr. Jelani Cobb.
