“Assata Shakur’s Legacy & Lives of Resistance” Free University
Saturday, June 15th
12pm – 6pm
Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem
(enter the south side at 120th st and 5th ave)
Free University-NYC and Brecht Forum invite friends, families, comrades, and community groups to share and learn about Assata Shakur, a Black Liberation activist living in exile in Cuba, as well as discuss a wide range of movements’ histories, campaigns, and skills for social change.
We invite you to contribute workshops relating to this Free University theme. Some suggestions:
*Political Resistance – stories of Assata Shakur and other political prisoners and exiles; Stop Stop & Frisk; know-your-rights training.
*Education Resistance – votes of no confidence; test boycotts; student strikes; decolonizing curriculum and classrooms; halting the school-to-prison pipeline and school closures.
*Spaces of Resistance – prisoners’ struggles; campaigns to end immigrant raids and deportations; housing and financial rights workshops.
Help coordinate this event. Skills in dialogue facilitation, community outreach, online publicity, video/audio documentation, event logistics, info table welcoming & support, food and art materials donations, and more are heartily welcome.
