After Charleston: Where Do We Go from Here?
Join us on Saturday, July 11:
10am NAACP General Membership Meeting
11am Public program: “After Charleston: Where Do We Go from Here?”
In his moving eulogy for Reverend Clementa Pinkney, President Obama called us to have hope, and to reach for “that reservoir of goodness” in our treatment of one another. He also challenged us not to settle for symbolic gestures, but to do the hard work that will lead to real change.
For our July program, we will show the full recording of Obama’s eulogy and invite you to share your responses. As a community, we accept the president’s call to action–to stand against racism where we live, and to work hard toward lasting change. Join us for a discussion of the concrete ways we can come together to break the patterns of prejudice and injustice.
