The words and deeds of Martin Luther King are often referenced during Black History Month. However, Coretta Scott King’s reflections about the struggle for equality remind us of how far we have come while advising of the vigilance and activism required to leave the world a better place than the one we were born into. There have always been Black American women playing crucial roles in advancing civil rights for all Americans.

DAUK’s Women’s Caucus and Black Caucus are holding a joint meeting Wednesday, February 21st, and we invite all members of DAUK to join us! Come learn about the impact of Black American women and activists, consider their contributions and share ideas about how their experiences intersect with other  communities to inspire us to act today from a well-informed place.

Doors open at 6:30 pm. Come early  for this chance to phone or write a postcard to your representatives in Congress to register your protest against the GOP’s legislative agenda. The meeting will begin at 7 pm with WC committee reports and Lan Wu’s short and punchy speech last month at the “Time’s Up” rally on January 21st in Whitehall.  At 7:30 pm DAUK Black Caucus will present “Freedom is Never Won, You Earn It and Win It in Every Generation”, followed by a workshop looking  at the role education plays perpetuating unconscious bias in society today.

Location: University Women’s Club, 2 Audley Square, South Audley Street, London W1K 1DB. Get your ticket here.
