Horizons of the Movement will bring together multiple generations of Black activists who attended the University of Michigan and fought for racial justice from 1970 to present, including BAM I, BAM II, BAM III, #BBUM, Students 4 Justice, and Black Student Union. Drawing upon their organizing histories, panelists will consider what has been achieved for racial justice at U-M and how far the university still needs to go.
