Get ready for speeches and performances from some of the movement’s best thinkers, artists and rabble-rousers. Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock and our emcee for the afternoon, Denver’s own David Sirota, will welcome us to the festivities. We’ll feature a roundtable of historians and activists discussing the media, race and activism. And we’ll hear from feminist and movement leaders about what we’ve accomplished — and what fights lie ahead. For extra inspiration, we’ll have poetry plus a special performance prepared just for us by acclaimed artist Staceyann Chin. You won’t want to miss this!
