We all have heard the saying "The struggle is real", but is it? You're invited to join us in a real conversation about today's struggle and where are we today compared to fifty years ago. Not one but two civil rights movements flourished in mid-twentieth century , and they did so in intimate conversation with one another. African American and Latino civil rights organizations continue to seek solutions to relevant issues. Yet they continue to grapple with the difficulty of forging solidarity across lines of cultural, class, and racial-ethnic difference, a struggle that remains central to contemporary American life. What similarities do we have and what worked then that's not working now? What steps if any can we make to reach a common ground?

This event is free to all and children friendly. Food & beverages will be provided.
