THE DEMISE OF SALEM UNITED'S BLACK HISTORY MONTH EXPO AT OLD TOWN HALL - SALEM MA
“What the people want is simple.
They want an America as good as its promise.”
—Barbara Jordan, U.S. congresswoman, lawyer, educator and leader during the Civil Rights Movement
BLACK HISTORY MONTH
FROM 1965 TO 2024
With 7 weeks left before Black History Month, the City of Salem MA decided to Breach their Agreement, with Salem United and its President, Doreen Wade. They are inserting their own adaptation of what Black Culture is, and what Black History Month represents. Therefore, another means to
silence the Black Voice.
Our work for justice continues!
We will work for 2025. See you in another location .
"It is certain, in any case, that ignorance, allied with power, is the most ferocious enemy justice can have."
— James Baldwin
