Ebony Weekend – day 2

Hey all!

So the next day, Saturday night, two more speakers came! We had Eljeer Hawkins and Dr. Jawanza Kunjufu speak to us and they were both just as inspiring as the first.

Mr. Hawkins talked about the Black Lives Matter campaign. Furthermore he often contributes to Socialist Alternative Newspaper on race, criminal justice, and the historic black freedom movement. He was an extremely powerful speaker.

To be perfectly honest, I missed out on Dr. Kunjufu. I have been ill all last week and this week and this speaker was at 9:00 pm to 10:30 so I couldn’t handle it. However, he is an author for over 40 books including Changing School Culture for Black Males, Understanding Black Male Learning Styles, Keeping Black Boys out of Special Education, and Reducing the Black Male Dropout Rate. His books are used in online courses nationwide.
