About the event

But hashtags don’t build movements, she tells us. People do.

In this exclusive online event, Garza is in conversation to discuss her new book The Purpose of Power.

Hear how Garza, the co-creator of the Black Lives Matter Global Network, responded to the persistent message that Black lives are of less value by organising and mobilising.

As the Principal of the Black Futures Lab and the Black to the Future Action Fund, Garza gives insights into how these organisations are working to transform Black communities, build Black political power, and change the way that power operates - locally and nationally.

Unflinching, challenging and inspiring, this event addresses the moment we’re in, how we got here and where we can go, together.

With nearly 20 years of organising experience, Alicia Garza offers valuable lessons on how we can inspire and activate more people to fight for the world we all deserve, while uncovering the possibilities that movements hold for our collective futures.

This event is pre-recorded exclusively for the Southbank Centre.

This event is a partnership between Southbank Centre and Penguin Live.
