Join the African American Women’s Resource Center for Kitchen Table Talks on Dec. 9, 30 and Jan. 6; 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at 840 First St. NE (third floor). Kitchen Table Talks is formed because the African American Women’s Resource Center believes that there is a need to gain from the knowledge and strategies of women who were engaged in organizing social justice movements in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. They do this by having talks with women of color who participated in the civil rights, women’s rights and LGBT rights movements. Kitchen Table Talks come from the African American tradition of sitting around the kitchen table sharing important and often life-saving information in a manner that everyone can understand. aawrc.org.
