Reinvent the Civil Rights Movement
How do we reinvent the Civil Rights Movement to combat the changing face of racism?
Fifty years after the March on Washington, no one can argue that America has reached the promised land of a society free from racism. People of color today face a very different, and in some ways, more complex, form of systemic racism. This roundtable brought together a wonderful mix of the next generation of civil rights activists to discuss ways we can take advantage of powerful digital tools that would have dazzled those in Martin Luther King Jr.’s time. How do we take the new tools, organize the growing numbers of supporters, and build upon the lessons of that first Civil Rights era to make rapid progress on both the cultural and legislative fronts?
