BLUU Organizing Collective: An Introduction to Anti-Blackness

Room: R06

Speakers: Drs. Michael Dumas & Takiyah Amin
Moderator: Lena K Gardner, Executive Director BLUU

Anti-blackness is a global phenomenon that affects people in every cultural and ethnic group. Within larger systems of structural oppression, it translates to higher rates of social ills, including poverty, unemployment, poor health outcomes, and substandard housing. We will also discuss the impact of anti-blackness in our congregations and beyond.
