Stand Against Racism 

When: Fri., April 29, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. 2011
Phone: (843) 722-1644
Price: Free
Amid all the sesquicentennial talk in Charleston this month, one of the main, underlying themes has been slavery, so the YWCA’s second Stand Against Racism, a celebration of cultural diversity, seems very appropriately timed. Participating organizations include the state’s branch of the ACLU, the city branch of the NAACP, the League of Women Voters, the Charleston Jewish Federation, and many more. There will be a performance by African dancers from WO’SE of Charleston, a poetry reading from Harold Singletary, live gospel from the Lucas Sisters, and multiethnic food. There’s also a number of speakers lined up, including Sara Nicholson (Planned Parenthood), Dr. Ida Johnson-Spruill (Medical University of South Carolina), and Celina Anthony (Circulo Hispanoamericano de Charleston), and a panel discussion with a number of community members.
