Left Coast Forum 2018: Centrality of Race
This year’s Left Coast Forum takes head on the challenge that considerations of racial justice need to be infused in every issue progressive communities address.
What better way to begin than with a conversation between Kelly Lytle Hernandez, the author of “City of Inmates – Conquest, Rebellion, and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles, 1771-1965,” and Forum organizer Sharon Kyle: “A Conversation: Centrality of Race.”
Following that, we’ll be treated to a keynote by Melina Abdullah, Chair of Pan-African Studies at
Cal State LA and founding member and leading spokesperson for Black Lives Matter-LA, who will address the pressing crisis of police shootings with “Black Lives STILL Matter…Especially When White Priviledge Tells You They Don’t.”
And between them, we’ll be treated to Comedienne Mona Shaikh, with her fresh, fearless, eyebrow-raising free speech.
