Celebrate Black History Month
As part of Black History Month advocacy, the Local 764 Social Justice Task Force recommends to the membership the New York City Central Labor Council 2023 Labor & Civil Rights Panel Discussion.
Thursday February 9th at 6 pm:
Join the NEW YORK CITY CENTRAL LABOR COUNCIL on Thursday, February 9, at 6:00PM for a panel discussion, live on Facebook, to discuss the role of the Labor Movement in the fight for racial, social, and economic justice.
This will include reflection on the last three years and its impact on working families in New York City and across the country: the healthcare crisis of COVID-19, the economic crisis, and the continuing crisis of racial inequality, as well as how they are all interconnected.
As previously announced:
The Local 764 Social Justice Task Force would like to invite their 764 kin to the
FIRST HERITAGE BOOK CLUB for the month of FEBRUARY!
To celebrate Black History Month, the Task Force would like to invite our union kin to read with us:
Nubia: The Awakening by Omar Epps & Clarence A. Haynes
Black joy is essential to celebrate. While the history of Black folks in America is at times too horrific to recount, black trauma too frequently presented as entertainment or the only history part of Black history worth chronicling. Black culture is not monolithic.
The culture is eclectic, rich in varied experiences, and undeniably has contributed to some of the most iconic American movements such as the fight for civil rights and the spread of the organized labor unions.
This month we explore black fantasy. Nubia: The Awakening is a gripping and exciting futuristic fantasy that revolves around three teenage refugees whose people struggle under oppression but their lives change when their dormant supernatural powers awaken.
We’ll be holding a discussion group to share our thoughts on this futuristic novel on MARCH 5th! The time is TBD. Please register here:
This year, the theme of Black History Month is “Resistance.” Our collection begins with a broad view of this theme from a historian’s perspective – highlighting centuries of aspiration and its impact on policy, progress, and culture. The challenge weaves history together with entertainment related topics and also makes detours into issues such as politics and climate. Some entries, marked with an asterisk (*) are wide ranging websites with additional resources or lists which you can use to tailor the challenge for your own use or refer back to throughout the year. Occasionally certain articles may be restricted to subscribers, but there is always at least one free offering for each day.
