Event Description:
Ford Hall Forum presents The Revolution Will Be Online

Speakers: Jay Smooth (blogger, The Ill Doctrine), Spectra Speaks (blogger, Spectra Speaks), Andrew Ti (blogger, Yo, Is This Racist?)

Moderator: TBA

Description:  In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act, Ford Hall Forum convenes this panel of popular anti-racism bloggers to discuss how far we’ve come – or haven’t – since 1964. What does racism and anti-racism look like from a Millennial perspective, and how do activists relate to those who came before them? This nuanced conversation will touch upon multiracial contexts, the value of intersectionality, the perils and perks of connecting via commenting, and more. Broadcast journalist Callie Crossley sits down with Andrew Ti, Spectra Asala, and Jay Smooth for an in-person discussion on how, 50 years later, racism is fought through the world’s electronic town hall.

Co-Presenters: Museum of African American History, ArtWeek Boston, Literary Cultural District

Location: African Meeting House, 46 Joy Street, Boston MA 02114
