What is it like being Black in America today? Is “Jim Crow” still a feature of American life? If so, what form does it take? What are some practical ways we can better understand being Black in America and develop solidarity with African Americans in Grand Rapids? Our presenter, Rev. Joe Jones, is the Executive Director of the Urban League of Grand Rapids. The League is a 70-year old civil rights organization whose mission is to empower African Americans to achieve economic self-reliance, equality, and civil rights. He has many stories to share about the real lives and struggles of Black families in Grand Rapids.
