Southerners on New Ground & the Gay Community Center of Richmond host a workshop on the history of social movements.
From the organizers:
This participatory workshop uses a social history timeline, our movement experience, and small groups to explore lessons of past movements, especially the labor and black freedom struggles of the 20th century, for understanding today’s movement. We explore changes in society and how movements have to be located within historical conditions, victories and reforms won in past struggles, where these gains are in the early 21st century, and what this means for our current movement building and consciousness raising and political education work. Some exploration of Occupy within the current moment will also be included. This workshop will be facilitated by Virginia Leavell and Walda Katz-Fishman
