CANCELED: Jamala Rogers on ‘Ferguson is America: Roots of Rebellion’

February 7, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Given the situation with the Super Bowl and transportation on Sunday, we have decided to cancel this event and join forces with Eastside Arts Alliance and their event with Jamala Rogers on Tuesday, February 9. Please come through on Tuesday! More info. here, and thank you for understanding!


Join us for a discussion with Jamala Rogers, founder of the St. Louis based Organization for Black Struggle & author of Ferguson is America: Roots of Rebellion.

Jamala will explore the roots of the Ferguson Rebellion and the practical lessons for organizing.

“There is no algorithm, no theory that can predict when human rage reaches its boiling point. I wanted to expose to some and to remind others that there is another side of Ferguson, St. Louis County, USA that exists…if we work together in a respectful & disciplined way, a new Ferguson, St. Louis, & USA, is possible.” —Jamala Rogers

$5-10 donation, no one turned away for lack of funds. Wheelchair accessible, childcare provided (please RSVP here or to for childcare so we know how many kids there will be)

Sponsored by: Freedom Road Socialist Organization/Organización Socialista del Camino para la Libertad and LeftRoots

Jamala graduated from a Kansas City, MO high school in 1968, during a period of massive civil unrest, when hundreds of cities engaged in open rebellion—leading to significant political and cultural shifts nationwide.

In 1998, she, along with Angela Davis, Danny Glover and many others, hosted thousands at the founding convening of the Black Radical Congress (BRC) in Chicago, IL. Prior to the BRC Jamala co-founded the St. Louis-based Organization for Black Struggle (OBS) in 1980 and 35 years later continues to provide the organization with leadership and mentoring. Jamala’s deep insight, experience, and continued activism help us navigate critical questions of race, justice, hope, and political struggle for ourselves and our country.
