Black August

August 12, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 7:00 pm EDT


Open to all, this Black August event is a time to remember Black revolutionaries, organize around principles of unity and self-sacrifice, and educate ourselves around critical resistance for Black people. Black August was initially conceptualized around the murder of George Jackson in 1971.

Organized and led by Hope Health Healing Collective of Youth Sanctuary, with Uptown Summer 2021!

Please check the Black August NY web site for other Black August events!
