Changing the Southern Narrative

Changing the Southern Narrative

FRI | Sept 20 | 6-8pm | Free

Take Em Down Jax is sponsoring this important educational opportunity. We are wanting to create an environment where we can have an important discussion based on the questions:

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO TAKE DOWN THE CONFEDERATE MONUMENTS?

WHAT DOES THIS STRUGGLE HAVE TO DO WITH FIGHTING AGAINST RACISM TODAY?

WHAT IS WHITE SUPREMACY AND WHITE NATIONALISM?

Speakers who are facilitating the conversation include:

Rev. Ron Rawls, St. Paul AME Church in St. Augustine
Hazel Gillis, President of the James Weldon Johnson Branch of the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASAALH)
Melanie Patz, Co-Chair of the Jacksonville Community Remembrance Project

PLEASE JOIN US!
