Join the SL Multicultural Center as we celebrate United Black World Month, also known as Black History Month. 

We welcome you to the opening celebration of United Black World Month as we celebrate the theme Black Movements: Stories of Our Resistance. The evening will feature Frank Leon Roberts - a writer, activist-scholar, and political organizer based in New York City where he is currently on the lecturer-faculty of New York University's Gallatin School. Roberts is best known for his course “Black Lives Matter: Race, Resistance, and Popular Protest” - one of the first courses on the Black Lives Matter movement in the nation. Roberts is the co-founder of the National Black Justice Coalition and previously served as the assistant to legendary civil rights attorney Johnnie Cochran whom he worked with on the legal movement for racial reparations. Roberts has written for Vibe Magazine, The Huffington Post, Uptown Magazine, The Village Voice, and The San Francisco Chronicle.
