Murdoch Community Center – Acknowledgement of Land, People & Unity

November 15 @ 6:00 pm

As presented by the Southside Community Association: The Lived Black Experience CommUnity Dialogue Project
Acknowledgement of Land, People & Unity
As the Flagstaff City Council moves forward the idea of reading a land acknowledgement statement at the start of City Council meeting several members mentioned the role that the Southside Community Association (especially Ms. Deborah Harris) had in bringing the topic forward.
This LBE is to provide the commUnity the opportunity to hear directly from the three women who drafted the land acknowledgement, hear the actual land acknowledgement submitted for consideration (it’s not the one that was printed in the local newspaper) and a discussion regarding the work that black individuals do to uplift their ENTIRE communities (not just those who are black) and the continued perception that the fight for black equality is only for and about black people.
