Join YES! and Colorlines for “This Uprising: How to Make Black Lives Really Matter,” a virtual discussion with Michael Harriot of The Root and historian Jamon Jordan, hosted by YES! Executive Editor Zenobia Jeffries Warfield and Colorlines Senior Editorial Director Angela Bronner Helm.
This free event on Thursday, Sept. 17 at 1 p.m. PT/4 p.m. ET is open to the public via Zoom. Tickets will be limited for this special event, so reserve your seat now.
Harriot is the senior writer at The Root and a frequent guest of MSNBC and CNN, and Jordan is an African and African American historian, both of whom authored stories in the newly published Black Lives issue of YES! Magazine. Harriot, Jordan, Bronner Helm, and Jeffries Warfield will discuss the impact of the tens of millions of people who have taken to the streets of nearly 550 cities to declare that “Black Lives Matter,” and unpack what Black Lives Matter really means and what it looks like. The panelists will also discuss their contributions to the new issue of YES! Magazine and answer questions from attendees.
Available on newsstands and yesmagazine.org now, the Black Lives issue of YES! Magazine is a collaboration between YES! and Colorlines. Edited by Jeffries Warfield and Bronner Helm, it features, along with Harriot and Jordan, more than 20 Black journalists, historians, policymakers, researchers, artists, and photographers who imagine a world in which public safety does not require racist and violent policing, where there are no racial inequities in health care, and the debts owed by this nation for Black labor are paid.
