What are Liberation Lectures?

 
 

Liberation Lectures are educational workshops held to discuss specific topics having to do with the African Diaspora. During these sessions the Co-Founders and or guest speakers engage in dialogues centered on specifics topics focused on knowledge of the diaspora and the importance of building solidarity throughout the diaspora. We organize Liberation Lectures for community organizations and schools in Baltimore, Maryland and for excursions in Havana, Cuba.
