Goldie Taylor (above, veteran journalist now editor at The Daily Beast) joins Zelli Imani and Brittany Packnett in a #BlackLivesMatter panel at #TheGenerationofNow program at the Carl Lewis Center on Sunday, December 13, 1:30 to 6 p.m., arranged by redefy. Primarily for teens but open to adults, organizers expect more than 200 people, but you may be able to register here.

If you can come only for part of the afternoon, the panels are from 1:30 to 4:55 p.m. and they are in this order: The first panel, with Donya Nasser and others,  is on interfaith activism — how to advance racial justice between different faith-based communities. Second is #BlackLivesMatter. Third is Haroon Mogul, an expert on Islam, foreign policy, and the Muslim World, on combatting Islamophobia. The fourth panel, with Lina Wu, Caroline Lee and others,  is on marginalization of the Asian experience in mainstream culture.
