FoodSpark Potluck: Black Liberation

Join us on Saturday, June 22nd as we kick off our Black Summer Series with a potluck discussion on Black Liberation.

We will gather in Fairground Park near the pool, touching on topics including the 70th anniversary of the Pool Race Riots, Juneteenth, and the 5 year anniversary of Michael Brown Jr.’s murder. This conversation will be co-facilitated by Marvin Greer from Missouri Historical Society and Nay'Chelle Harris of Young Friends of the Ville. This event is free and open to the public. Families and children are welcome.

The culinary theme for this potluck event is: "the cookout"

Come share what’s on your mind and bring a side dish for the barbeque!


Because this event is a picnic, we recommend you consider bringing the additional following items:
blankets, cushions, folding chairs, tupperware, reusable eating-wear and utensils


This event is co-organized by FoodSpark, Great Rivers Greenway, The Griot Museum of Black History, Missouri Historical Society, and Young Friends of the Ville.
