People's Lunch Counter: Black August
People's Lunch Counter Presents: Ramona and Pam Africa
Southside On Lamar
1409 S Lamar
The People's Lunch Counter is an organization in Dallas that works as an advocate for food justice and sustainability.The PLC provides a holistic approach to ending food insecurity and focus on a healthy body and mind through education, gardening and environmental awareness.
Part of our awareness campaigns include bringing awareness to the communities about political prisoners and organizations like MOVE who set the presidence and created a path for groups like us to be able and speak out against the misinformation and propaganda of the system.
Every August, PLC along with The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement and other organizations come together to recognize the contributions made in August for the liberation of black people. We focus on political prisoners and events that occured in August throughout history. This year our Black August Course is dedicated to MOVE. We have two classes a week studying MOVE and the events leading up to the 1985 Bombing, the continued incarceration of the MOVE 9 and current events that MOVE is working on for Mumia also. Participants are encouraged to write to the 8 comrades at the end of the course and continue to show them love and support after the course as well.
The last week of this years Black August Course is ending with two special guest speakers! Ramona and Pam Africa will be in Dallas to host showings of the MOVE documentary on August 26th at Doc Shop Bookstore in Fort Worth and August 27th in Dallas at the Progressive Center. PLC is truly honored to have them and we are looking forward to continuing to support the MOVE and the campaign to bring home the Africa family still imprisoned.The People's Lunch Counter can be found on Facebook at www.facebook.com/plcdallas or email us at email@example.com
