"Black Lives Matter” yard signs are all over our community for more than six months. They continue to echo perhaps the most widespread attention to racial inequities in America since school integration. But what do they mean now? To look for clues, ponder the “The Hill We Climb” poem 22-year-old Amanda Gorman wrote and delivered at President Biden’s inauguration. Come with your thoughts and questions to this community discussion by zoom. NCCC neighbor Dr. Ruth Enid Zambrana, distinguished professor of sociology at the University of Maryland, will facilitate. The full poem is at https://g.co/kgs/oKHgzP and elsewhere online. February is Black History Month. Hosted by North Chevy Chase Connections. Access on Zoom via https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85874822819?pwd=NWVPMGIydzJ3ck1rc09NRTYySVNMUT09. (Meeting ID: 864 1951 6846 / Passcode: 297805 / One tap mobile +13017158592)
