In 2013, following the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement coalesced as a call to action demanding justice for unarmed black Americans killed by police and vigilantes. BLM activists have protested the state-sanctioned violence against black communities and the colorblind laws that trap black Americans in a racial caste system. In response, the BLM movement devised new strategies of protest and organization to mobilize in defense of human rights. How are their strategies different from Civil Rights Era activists? Come join Beth Hinderliter (Visiting Associate Professor in Cross Disciplinary Studies) for a short presentation and a subsequent conversation on the urgency of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Please bring your lunch; dessert and coffee will be provided. All are welcome.
