On Saturday, July 13, the United African Organization welcomed 30 people at their Racial Justice Roundtable: Allies in Asian American, Arab/Muslim and latino communities. The final three-part segment sold out fast as Bryan Echols, friend of UAO and President/CEO of Concerned Black Men Chicago facilitated the talks. As extremely diverse groups of individuals had come to sit down and talk about similar issues in their communities, the conversation mainly explored different forms of racism, with the hope of strengthening bonds and building effective Black/Brown alliances. Diverse groups in attendance included members from the African immigrant, African-American, Asian-American, Arab/Muslim, and Latino communities.
This is a special series hosted by the United African Organization.
