Dates: Thursday, April 1, 2021
Time: 1 p.m
Location: Zoom

Please encourage your students to join the Osceola Humanities department for “Tearing Hatred from the Sky,” an address by Bree Newsome Bass, on Thursday, April 1, 2021, at 1 p.m.

Following the massacre of Black parishioners at Emanuel AME Zion Church in Charleston, South Carolina, America’s complicated history with the confederate flag came sharply into focus. By taking action to remove the symbol from the South Carolina Statehouse in 2015, Bree Newsome Bass became an icon for a new wave of activism. Working as a community organizer, Bass emphasizes the importance of leadership development in building and sustaining movements. In this powerful address, she recalls the events that led to her ascent onto a national stage and issues a call to continue the path towards justice.
