comment

This week's calls to action include the following events and activities. All are free and open to the public unless otherwise noted.

Discussion of memoir on the Jim Crow south

Moving Beyond Racism Book Group will meet at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 4, to discuss "Black Boy," a memoir by Richard Wright. The first publication of the book was in the mid 1940's, and it is split into two sections: Wright's early years growing up in the Jim Crow south, and his early adulthood in Chicago where he becomes involved with the Communist Party. The group will meet at Barnes & Noble in Pittsford Plaza. It isn't necessary to read the book to come to the meeting.

Enough is Enough will host a presentation by organizer Jason Ware at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, December 29. Ware is a member of Black Youth Project 100 and We Charge Genocide. His work includes organizing against police violence. A discussion will follow Ware's presentation. The event will be held at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street. Donations welcome.
