Black History Month, Violence and Education

Black History month is often relegated to a time when significant Black figures are highlighted and that Black people’s struggle for equality in America is emphasized. This rendering of Black History Month contributes to the dehumanization of Black people and undermines meaningful approaches to authentic empowerment of Black people. This event will address the relationship between the limits of mainstream approaches to honoring Black history, the challenges regarding education, and violence in the Black community. Presented by Dayvon Love, Director of Public Policy at Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle.

Leaders of a Beautiful Struggle (LBS) is a grassroots think-tank which advances the public policy interest of Black people, in Baltimore, through: youth leadership development, political advocacy, and autonomous intellectual innovation.  

Free, no registration required. Seating is first come, first serve. Please note that marking interest does not reserve a seat. 

Re-opening activities are made possible in part by a generous gift from Sandra R. Berman.
