From Solidarity to Co-liberation: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing

Tuesday, January 19, 2021
3:30 p.m.-5 p.m.

As a continuation of the celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Life and Legacy, The University of Michigan-Dearborn's MLK planning committee is excited to host the workshop "From Allyship to Co-liberation: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing" presented by lifelong Detroiter, poet, and activist, Tawana "Honeycomb" Petty. 

Petty will lead us through her analysis of the various forms of allyship; from solidarity to co-liberation. Petty will share principles of anti-racism organizing from her book, “Towards Humanity: Shifting the Culture of Anti-Racism Organizing,” and discuss how non-Black organizers can practice genuine non-performative collaboration with the movement for Black Lives. Although Petty focuses on anti-Black racism and organizing, her principles and wisdom can be applied to other movement spaces as well. 

This event will be live streamed with Tawana Petty presenting and a Q&A to follow. The Q&A feature will be active during the webinar. Please feel free to submit questions during registration process or during the event.

Thank you!
