The Emergence of #BlackLivesMatter: A Movement not a Moment
Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30

With the cooperation of the Purdue Black Cultural Center, Monticello-Union Township Public Library is pleased to present this educational panel on the Black Lives Matter movement. Juanita Crider (Program Advisor for the Purdue Black Cultural Center/American Studies doctoral student), Baraka Corley (Program Manager for the Purdue Black Cultural Center), and Joseph Morrison (Coordinator Student Diversity Service at the Purdue University Diversity Resource Office) will discuss the origins and significance of #BlackLivesMatter.

What does it mean to members of the African American community? What is the relevance for those outside the movement? And why does "All Lives Matter" fundamentally misunderstand the movement?  Bring any questions you have for an illuminating discussion.
