HOLD THE DATE!

IBW’S 50TH ANNIVERSARY GATHERING, OCTOBER 16 AND 17, 2020

 

Dear IBW Family Members:

While the pandemic rages around us, we send you our heartfelt wishes for your good health and safety. To those who have lost loved ones, we send our warmest sympathies. Time will move on, however, allowing us the opportunity to contemplate what a more compassionate, just society might look like.

The Institute of the Black World was created 50 years ago as a progressive forum for the discussion of issues relevant to all people of African descent. In honor of the anniversary, and propelled by our life-changing reality, a group of former IBW staff has been planning an event for later this year.

Theme:     VISIONS FOR A HUMANE WORLD” 

Dates:        Friday and Saturday, October 16-17, 2020

Location:   The Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, Atlanta, Georgia.

Topics:       Health; Education; Justice; and the Environment

We look forward to your suggestions for presenters, as well as ways in which you could be involved.

A website www.instituteblackworld.org hosting articles and podcasts will soon be operational and we will notify you when it is. You will be able to receive updates about the event, as well as news, archival links, articles and opinions contributed by members of our wider IBW family. Our plan is to make the IBW Gathering sessions available to livestream or download for those unable to attend in person.

We ask you to share this email with those who might be interested in participating. We also need your help in compiling a broader data base of names and email addresses as soon as possible.

With peace and love,

The IBW 50th Anniversary Gathering Coordinating Committee:

Malaika Adero                               William Dorsey

Aljosie Aldrich Harding                 Collette Hopkins
