An afrofuturistic 4-week dinner and discussion group designed for individuals committed to the liberation of the Earth and all people.
The fall of capitalism will be the end of the world as we know it. “Change for the better” is an afrofuturistic 4-week family style dinner and discussion group designed for individuals committed to the liberation of the Earth and all people. The intentions of this discussion group are to dispel fear about change and embrace new beginnings. Engage with literature and deep discussion about how to free ourselves from hate and oppression. Within this course we break bread, examine history, and leave with a road map for achieving inner and world peace.Dinner Dates and Topics
