Join us this campaign season for the Winter 2020 edition of our community classroom, Detroiters Speak. The series will explore historical and current intersections in Detroit across electoral politics, governance, and movement-building. Questions to explore, include: What is "democracy"? How do we understand and build community power? Do we trust our government? How should we analyze and hold accountable our governmental institutions? What roles can electoral politics play in struggles for civil and human rights? And much, much more.
Sessions on February 6th, 13; March 19, 26; and April 2, 9 will take place at the Cass Corridor Commons (4605 Cass Ave.)
Sessions on February 20 & 27 will take place at the General Baker Institute (15798 Livernois)
As always, everyone is welcome, a light dinner is provided, and we look forward to your contributions to our growing, intergenerational learning community.
Brought to you for the fifth consecutive year by the U-M Semester in Detroit Program, the WSU Department of African American Studies, the Cass Corridor Commons, and the Detroit Equity Action Lab (an initiative of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne State University Law School).
