Join us for an important discussion with Dr. Vincent Intondi, author of "African Americans Against the Bomb", on the intersection of US nuclear weapons policy and the fight for racial equality.

The United States is on a path to spend $1.7 trillion over the next 30 years rebuilding our entire nuclear weapons arsenal.  This talk will address how African American activists have been involved in the fight against nuclear weapons, how racism, colonialism, and inequity have shaped our nuclear policy, and how this is playing out under our current Administration. We'll also explore why communities of color and other citizens concerned with social and racial justice can and should be engaged with the issue of nuclear weapons, and how to take action today.

Vincent Intondi is an Associate Professor of History and Director of the Institute for Race, Justice, and Community Engagement at Montgomery College in Takoma Park, Maryland. He is the author of the book, "African Americans Against the Bomb: Nuclear Weapons, Colonialism, and the Black Freedom Movement."

Admission is free, and the event is open to the public. However, space is limited, so be sure to RSVP!
