Anti-Racism Working Group Meeting

September 11, 2017 @ 7:30 pm UTC+0

The September Anti-Racism WG meeting will take place on Monday, September 11th, at 7:30 pm in the south study room on the 6th floor of the Harold Washington Library.

We are going to experiment with doing the reading discussion at the end of the meeting. Please see two short N.Y. Times pieces from the sixties, regarding Deacons for Defense and Justice, a group that emerged as a response to KKK and other white supremacist terror. The articles, while sympathetic to the Deacons, are a product of their time and reflect certain problematic attitudes — but they’re interesting examples of how black struggles were covered by the Paper of Record, and their subject, the DDJ, deserves more attention.
