A Community Conversation: Brokering Peace: The House of Umoja & a Safer Philadelphia – Nov 30
Posted by WHYY on November 8, 2022
In the 1970s, The House of Umoja created a “Boystown” as a place for at-risk male youth. One of its most notable efforts was the Imani Peace Pact of 1974, a truce among local gangs. With Philadelphia’s current homicide rates skyrocketing, we search for solutions to the bloodshed and what we can learn from The House of Umoja about brokering peace.
Join us for a panel discussion of the issues.
You can also view the museum’s new exhibit, Vision & Spirit: African American Art: Works from the Bank of America Collection, preview a forthcoming documentary by Jos Duncan Asé, “Falaka Fattah & The House of Umoja.”
Date and Time: Thursday, November 30, 2022, 6:30-8:30 PM
Location: African American Museum of Philadelphia, 701 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
