Freedom Forum: Montgomery Bus Boycott, Black Business, Buying Power, and the Boycott Tactic

Mass Action Against Police Brutality is hosting a discussion and video presentation on the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Fighters for social justice today often reference the Montgomery Bus Boycott as an example of how the boycott tactic is a necessary tool in the arsenal of methods employed to bring about social change. Over the last several years different organizations have called for a boycott of spending during the holidays to force the powers that be to acquiese to our demands. How was the boycott carried out in Montogomery?
How have more recent calls been carried out? Have they been effective? What is the truth about the value and power of Black spending? What will it take to change the conditions we live under? How should it be carried out? These and other burning questions will be discussed!!!
