On August 9th 2015, the California African American Museum hosted its monthly Sunday cultural experience, Target Sundays. An event that brings in community members, contemporary artists, cultural historians, activists, and leaders to celebrate the diversity and achievements of the African Diaspora.
At the event I took the initiative to interview several Los Angeles community members about their thoughts on the movie Selma, #BlackLivesMatter, the effectiveness of marches and protests, and ultimately, their definitions of justice.
Not only did we have an amazing time under the stars, we carved out time to acknowledge the ones who've paved the way for us to be here. If you didn't make it out this month, come on out next time. It's sure to be a wonderful time with family and friend that you won't likely want to miss!
THANKS AGAIN to Target and the California African American Museum for such a wonderful event!
