Monday’s Occupy Forum will explore the Black Lives Matter movement: its origins, what is happening right now, and where it is headed.

We hope to have a number of speakers who've been involved in the recent outpouring of involvement, along with Gerald Smith, a longtime scholar of Black History and Black Culture -- a former Black Panther Party member, long active with the Longshoremens Worker's Union in its actions to end apartheid in South Africa, and a co-founder of The Oscar Grant Committee, which investigates cases of Police Brutality and functions as a support group for the families and friends of victims of Police abuse..

Gerald has been involved with the Black Lives Matter movement in Oakland and Ferguson. If you've been involved in recent actions or other aspects of the movement, please come to contribute your perspective.
