ATLANTA – There has been a dramatic paradigm shift in the collective sentiment of African Americans on how to construct viable sociopolitical change as well creating the type of cultural unity that births tangible economic power. This line of thinking can be crystallized, for example, through rappers Killer Mike and T.I. as well as singer Usher publicly pronouncing their support of black-owned banks by opening accounts at Citizens Trust in Atlanta.
Another upcoming event exemplifies that mentality and is being hosted by State Representative Dar’shun Kendrick (D-Lithonia), along with Minority Access to Capital, Inc. and the Lambda Epsilon Omega chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc.. The trio will facilitate an economic justice forum on Thursday, September 8, 2016, from 6 – 9 p.m. at the Emory School of Law in Atlanta.
The forum, entitled, “How to use our Dollars to Make Change,” will include a panel discussion on ways to demand social change through spending power. Those interested in attending must register in advance and spaces are limited.
The forum at Emory University School of Law is located in Gambrell Hall, Room 1D, 1301 Clifton Rd., Atlanta, GA 30322
