Event Description:

Former members of the New York City chapters of the Black Panthers and the Young Lords Denise Oliver-Velez, Shepard “Bro. Shep” McDaniel and Cleo Silvers join food justice activists and health experts to discuss the history of urban food justice, beginning with the 1906 publication of “The Jungle,” through the revolutionary activists of 1960-70s New York who helped start free breakfast programs for poor children and seniors that eventually lead to the federal government creating a national school breakfast program that serves more than 14.7 million children every day. “114 Years of Revolutionary Food Justice: From Upton Sinclair to the Black Panthers, Young Lords and the Ongoing Fight to Change the System” will be held at the College’s Music Building, in the East Dining Hall, from 1–3 p.m. The program is co-sponsored by a Humanities NY Reading & Discussion grant; the CUNY Institute for Health Equity; along with Lehman’s Social Justice Committee; and the schools of Arts and Humanities, and Health Sciences, Human Services, and Nursing.
