A Public Forum hosted by the UMass International Socialist Organization and
co-sponsored by the UMass Black Student Center

How do we stop the war on Black America?

Featuring guest speaker KHURY PETERSEN-SMITH

Thursday, March 29th
Point View Lounge, Campus Center 3rd Floor

There is a war being waged against Black America. In Boston, public schools in black neighborhoods are being shuttered while families face foreclosure and long-term unemployment, Stop-and-Frisk policies and the ongoing War on Drugs have locked up millions of black and brown people in a system that many are called the “New Jim Crow”. Join in a discussion as to what we can do about these and other assaults on the black community.
