Malcolm X: “The white man will try to satisfy us with symbolic victories rather than economic equity and real justice”
Beyond Words is a reminder that symbolic gestures without action only serve to further the divide between the oppressed and the oppressor.
Words are powerful, but they cannot placate hunger. They won’t ensure access to housing. They won’t hold police accountable when they cause harm to the community.
Join us for a teach-in and community building on the BLM mural on the corner of Grand and Communipaw on Wednesday 8/26 6pm.
