New Timbuktu Organizing Seminars
ECLI has a non-debate track for individuals who want to be trained on activism and organizing - the New Timbuktu Organizing Seminars.
Traditionally, mainstream intellectual communities have been impotent in their endeavors to improve the quality of life of African descendant people. It has often been people outside the mainstream institutions of civil society that have been able to generate the greatest movement toward social transformation. The mission of this project is to cultivate a learning community that can make substantive contributions to ongoing dialog around movements for social justice in Baltimore and around the country.
The purpose of the activism training program is two-fold.
To create a learning community that is rooted the Black radical tradition, as opposed to the traditional, non-profit, liberal democratic white controlled framework that is popular in mainstream politics.
To develop organizing and intellectual tools to advance social justice in a way that builds an independent Black political and economic sphere.
This program will occur during the same time as ECLI - July 10th to July 31st on the campus of Coppin State University.
The seminars will be conducted Monday-Friday, 10am to 6pm.
There will be two sessions a day - one session in the morning and one in the afternoon.
The cost is $500 to attend all the sessions. Food and transportation is your responsibility. We have group rates available for colleges, businesses and organizations.
