A multimedia exploration of the local and national history of independent Black community organizing for social and economic justice. Serving as a political education and grassroots exchange of ideas, we will examine the historical roots of independent Black organizations such as the Student National Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Lowdnes County Freedom Organization, the Black Panther Party, the National Black Independent Party (NBIP) and others and their impact on the tactics and strategies used today in grassroots organizing in Black, Brown and other poor communities.
