Angela Davis and LaTosha Brown
There’s no argument that this is a moment of historic opportunity. People are deeply unsettled. We’re asking huge questions about the way things are – and opening our imagination about the way things should be. But that doesn’t matter much if we’re just talking. We need to get to action. And to do that, there’s a single question that’s more important to answer than any other:
What will it really take to create a racially just and healthy society?
The scale of that question is enormous. So, we’re calling in the expertise of two women who have the power, knowledge, and experience to change entire systems.
LaTosha Brown, co-founder of Black Votes Matter and New York Times contributor, is in the midst of literally transforming the American political landscape by building power in the nation’s predominantly Black communities.
Iconic activist Angela Davis has spent more than a half-century fighting for social and racial justice. She’s been on the frontlines of some of the most impactful movements in American history – having worked tirelessly to shift public perceptions about what’s radical to what’s reasonable, and now achievable.
Separately, these two leaders could each teach us how to remake America.
But imagine what might happen when we tap into the full combined force of their successes and failures, their shared vision and uncommon approaches. There isn’t a bottle strong enough to capture that kind of lightning.
