“Leave a mark, not a stain.” Tendaji W. Ganges
The Tendaji Talks, sponsored by Flint’s Neighborhoods Without Borders (NWOB), to commemorate the life and contributions of Tendaji W. Ganges, who died in 2015, continues into its second year of discussions on systemic racism in Flint August 8.
These discussions are designed to help Flint and area residents learn about our diverse neighbors, local issues caused by racism, and the impact of racism on our neighbors.
All conversations take place on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm at the Flint Public Library, 1026 E. Kearsley Street, Flint.
