The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) would like to once again thank guest speakers Ajamu Amiri Dillahunt, Noura Erakat, and Ahmad Abuznaid for a much-needed conversation on the importance of Palestinian and even broader- Arab- solidarity with Black communities. We would also like to thank the thousands of viewers who watched our conversation and shared it with their friends and families. We, as Arab-Americans, must continue to engage in these conversations in order to extinguish our anti-black racism and to stand in solidarity with our Black brothers and sisters, as well as all those facing oppression here and around the world.
As promised, we have now posted the webinar on YouTube where you can watch it here. Below, you will also find the list of resources and authors our guest speakers discussed during our conversation.
We hope that you enjoyed our webinar! Have a topic you think ADC should cover? Feel free to let us know what you would like us to discuss.
