Black August: Events Honoring Black Freedom Movement Come To Phoenix
A group of Valley-based organizations is bringing Black August to Arizona.
The event began in the 1970s, and it honors the Black freedom movement.
The groups — which include Mass Liberation Arizona, Black Lives Matter Metro Phoenix and Poder in Action — have scheduled a series of events throughout the month including workshops, conversations, candidate forums and a march.
To learn what Black August is all about, The Show spoke with Don Guillory, a history instructor at Arizona State University in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts.
