OUR MADISON PLAN
Mobilizing Madison for Change
BLACK HISTORY FOR A NEW DAY
”We need white allies to move beyond merely helping our black kids – we need allies who will help teach their own kids as well so that one day they will be able to work together with our kids in righting the wrongs of history.”
- Dr. Alex Gee
Allies For A Stronger Madison
This is a starting point for non-black people of courage and conviction to come together to think and learn about the history that has shaped our world and worldviews. Over nine Monday evenings, February 4 through April 15, Justified Anger will be collaborating with history professors from UW-Madison to revisit the American past with justice in mind.
Our purpose is to understand how the African-American experience has shaped the world we all live in, and how allies can find roles supporting racial justice today. We will lead this process without the use of guilt, finger-pointing, or propaganda, and lead from a place of compassion, community, and understanding. Rooting ourselves in our history, and understanding how we got here, will help us move forward together to make a better world and a stronger Madison.
