The first of a three part Rhizome Project speaker series for Black History Month, Rhizome Voice is curated by Queens based artist and activist Trasonia Abbott.
The current uprising has given way to a multitude of new local liberation organizations started by young activists. To those young activists we pose some questions: How was this mobilization possible in such a short time? How were the current organizers influenced by previous movements?
How does this experience compare to movements of the past – we invite experienced (our elder) activists to join the conversation. What similarities to your own activist beginnings, in spirit and drive and urgency, do you feel from the latest iteration of the movement?
Join us for an honest conversation with organizers to talk about their experiences, influences and future goals, bridging the gap between the decades of the Black Liberation Movement within the United States, connecting past movements to the current one with the hopes of rekindling victories and sharing tactics to keep the current movement alive.
