Educators and those interested in giving flesh to Black History Month are cordially invited to join the last session in a seven-part series featuring African-American intellectuals in their own words. The roundtable discussions focused on points raised by recognized African-American intellectuals as they themselves presented those points through the medium of YouTube. The common thread we highlighted was the need for equality of land access, in some fashion, in order to dislodge power of possession of the essential stratum of life: location.
If you choose to attend, you are encouraged to view the YouTube presentations in advance of the related Saturday morning gathering. There will be no screening of these YouTubes at the Saturday morning programs; rather, the Saturday mornings will be devoted to discussion of the previously viewed videos.
The seventh program will frankly address the land question.
Here are the links to the YouTubes we will reflect upon this Saturday:
