50 years organizing the Black community- “Where do we go from here?”
PCIAS commemorates Civil Rights activism and dialogues with Black youth
PHILADELPHIA- Join the Philadelphia Community Institute of Africana Studies in honoring the founders of the Revolutionary Action Movement and contribute to a cross-generational dialogue with youth throughout the city on the future of organizing within the Black community. During a panel discussion April 6, 2013 at the Historic Church of the Advocate PCIAS will sum up the gains, victories and shortcomings of this organizational experiment to answer the critical question of “where do we go from here?”
An offset of the student sit-in movement of the 1950s and the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, RAM was formed in 1963 as an African American direct-action movement under the tutelage of Mrs. Ethel “Azeel” Johnson and Queen Mother Audley Moore.
