Preview Our World: Is Today’s Social Activism a Movement, or Just a Moment?

Our esteemed panel of guests discuss the validity of the increase in protests around issues like Trayvon Martin's death and Occupy Wall Street

Our World's esteemed panelists, Marc Morial, Jamal Bryant, and Michael Eric Dyson

This week, on a special edition of Our World with Black Enterprise, we bring together a panel of leaders to discuss today’s seemingly resurrection of “the movement.” Host Marc Lamont Hill poses the question: Is it a Movement, or just a Moment? We talk to Marc Morial, President & CEO, National Urban League; Jamal Bryant, Pastor, Empowerment Temple; and Michael Eric Dyson, author and professor at Georgetown University. Among the many topics discussed during the roundtable are Trayvon Martin and Occupy Wall Street, which have both attracted national headlines. Tune in to Our World as we explore how and why now a growing number of Americans are banning together to fight social injustices.

Our World with Black Enterprise airs this Sunday at 10:00 a.m. on TV One and on local stations across the country.  Check your local listings and visit www.blackenterprise.com/ourworld for additional time and station information.

    Keep up the awareness-raising, Black Enterprise. Just now I read a news story about a policeman who kicked a Black woman called Raven Dozier in the stomach when she was pregnant. The policeman concerned has a record of violent actions but has been ‘cleared’ by investigations.

    The only positive here is that Black people and other people of all races/ethnicities are speaking out against brutality and repression. They must as fear means the outrages go on.

    If you want to see the story it’s currently on the Prison Planet website. While I disagree with the polical slant of some of the news posted there it does bring to light many issues like the case I mention here.

    Don’t let the biases of some (some) of the contributors stop you from getting this kind of information.
