Watch The final edition of The Art of Strategy: Building Solidarity Across Generations!  Our featured special guest vet, Mandy Carter, helps us to bridge the gap as we discuss the art and strategy of connection. Joining alongside her in conversation this evening will be George Holmes (they/them), Program Assistant at Amplify Georgia Collaborative and Organizer and Facilitator of Southern Jam and Lorie Bryant, Membership Outreach at Southerners on New Ground (SONG).  --This Summer series is a collaboration between the Southern Movement Assembly and the National Council of Elders exploring movement history and strategy with multi-generations of organizers and activists in conversation sharing stories from their experiences on the frontlines. --Mandy Carter is a southern Black lesbian activist with a 50-year movement history of social, racial, and LGBTQIA justice organizing since 1967. She is a co-founder of both Southerners On New Ground (SONG), a Queer liberation organization that uses community organizing to fight for economic and racial justice in the South; and of the National Black Justice Coalition (NBJC), a national civil rights organization dedicated to the empowerment of Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and same-gender loving people with a mission to end racism and homophobia. Since 2003, NBJC has provided leadership at the intersection of national civil rights groups and LGBTQ/SGL organizations, advocating for the unique challenges and needs of the African American LGBTQIA/SGL community that are often relegated to the sidelines. The Mandy Carter Papers Collection span the dates 1970 to 2013 and include files related to her work as a grassroots organizer and multi-issue social justice activist. The collection has been acquired as part of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture, Repository of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library, and Duke University.
