Following the July 2009 arrest of Harvard professor, Henry Louis Gates, on the front porch of his own home by Cambridge Police Sergeant, James Crowley, President Obama invited the two men to the White House for a meeting over beer to discuss the incident.
At the same time in Philadelphia, Global Citizen held its own Beer Summit in Center City for concerned citizens to meet, mingle, and discuss race relations in our city and throughout America.
On Monday, July 30, we will continue our discussion about race, class, and power, focusing on Race in America During the Trump Presidency. Beer (including non-alcoholic), soft drinks and snacks will be provided.
