POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE // Ujima, Ujamaa: The Cooperative Hxstory of the Civil Rights Movement

By Philadelphia Area Cooperative Alliance (other events)

Friday, March 13 2020 6:00 PM 7:30 PM EDT

Update on 3/12/20 at 4:46 p.m.: This workshop is POSTPONED, and will be rescheduled when 'social distancing' as a result of COVID-19 is no longer a recommended practice.

Original description:

Join Dominique, one of PACA’s Cooperative Business Developers, for a conversation exploring the ways Black leaders used cooperative economics and collective work to feed us, free us, and envision a future that is still possible. We’ll explore how we as Black folx recover leadership and rematriate the idea of cooperation today and into the future.

This is a space for folx who are interested in expanding their perspective of the practice of cooperation, taking a deeper look at lesser-known facets of the civil rights movement, and challenging the idea that singular leadership has been the key to moving society forward. We encourage Black folx to come through, and everyone is welcome.

We’ll bring the snacks. You’ll bring your full selves. It’ll be magic!


Notes on accessibility: This building is physically accessible. We are not able to offer separate childcare for this event, though your kiddos are most welcome to join in! We are also, unfortunately, not able to offer interpretation at this event.
