Friday Fruit: Facing Race Edition! (11/23/12)

Oh...just me hanging with
W. Kamau Bell, Franchesca Ramsey,
and Jay Smooth
Last week, leaders in racial justice from around the country gathered together at the Applied Research Center's Facing Race. It was an amazing time of fellowship and shared mission.

To give you a glimpse into the awesomeness, check out Rinku Sen's powerful opening speech, and then peruse a summary of the weekend's insights via storify. Finally, check out these stories from Andrea Plaid at Racialicious: No Justice, No PeasEnergy Democracy For All; and Junot Diaz Press Conference.
