For February 19th

This week, we’re back on our regular Tuesday meeting schedule for the rest of the semester. Though it doesn’t affect our class, remember that Monday’s a holiday and CUNY is closed.

For this week, we’ll start with our usual review of the AmNews. Read (at least) one news — not sports or entertainment — story carefully and report to the class. Here are questions you should ask to think critically:

  • What is the effect on the Black community?
  • How does it affect our work as organizers and how should we/our organizations respond?
  • What solutions can we collectively come up with?
  • (Re?)read chapters 1 and 11 in Amos Wilson’s Blueprint for Black Power that were assigned for last week. For next week, read chapter 2: “Organization and Ethnic Resources”. So, to summarize, be prepared to discuss pages 1-51 and 220-246 on Tuesday.
