Lecture Bob Brown
On 4 March 2020, the RIAS will welcome Bob Brown, a long time social justice activist and participant in the Black Power movement.
Over the past 50 years, Bob Brown has been an active member of numerous organizations dedicated to racial equality in the United States and throughout the African diaspora. In the 1960s, Brown was a member of the Chicago Chapter of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), director of the Midwest Office of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and director of the Chicago Chapter of the Black Panther Party. He has continued to support similar organizations since then and is currently an organizer for the All- African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP), a Pan-Africanist organization founded by Kwame Nkrumah in 1968.
Mr. Brown has spoken and written much about the philosophy of the Black Power movement and his experiences as a participant. His most recent book, Malcolm X and Kwame Ture, appeared in 2017 and contains a collection of articles by and about Malcolm X and Kwame Ture (formerly known as Stokely Carmichael).
The invitation is limited. If you wish to attend, please register (preferably before Tuesday 3 March 2020): +31(0)118 631590 / [email protected]
