November 9, 7:30 pm to 9pm Final Night: Author David Billings joins the discussion!
David Billings, a white man who has spent half a century working for racial justice, was born in McComb, Mississippi – the site of some of the fiercest struggles of the Civil Rights Movement – and later grew up in Helena, Arkansas. His family rubbed shoulders with the KKK yet never succumbed to the hatred that surrounded them. Since 1983 he has been a trainer and organizer with the People’s Institute for Survival and Beyond, a New Orleans-based group led by people of color and the premier anti-racism training group in the country.
