How did Black Americans and Africans become so embroiled in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? Why was the conflict a talking point for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights leaders, or for Nelson Mandela and the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa? How did Israel become a focal point of Black Lives Matter? Why are the Jewish people and Israel recurring topics for Louis Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam?
These are some of the subjects that will be tackled at the in-person event, “Israel, Zionism, Africa, & Black America: Where We Go From Here,” on Saturday, June 18th, from 1:00-2:30 PM, at the Southern Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, in Temple Hills, Maryland, near Washington, D.C.
