A timely African-American panel discussion, Daughters of the Movement: Where Do We Go From Here, will take place in New York City at the ICP Museum March 3 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The discussion will be moderated by Emmy nominated producer and writer Tanya Selvaratnam. According to the ICP Museum website, panelists will include “Gina Belafonte, daughter of Julie and Harry Belafonte; Suzanne Kay, daughter of Diahann Carroll; Stacy Lynch, daughter of Bill Lynch; Hasna Muhammad, daughter of Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee; Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz; Dominique Sharpton, daughter of Reverend Al Sharpton; and Keisha Sutton-James, granddaughter of Percy Sutton. The daughters will explore how their shared memories growing up watching their parents at work overlap and intertwine, as did the lives of their parents—activists, artists, politicians, political strategists, religious leaders and founders of the Civil Rights Movement.”

The daughters will no doubt bring rich insights to the Black women’s view of the Civil Rights Movement, and give testimony to their experiences as young women and what they have learned throughout their lives.

A website statement describes the Daughters of the Movement: “We are legacy holders. A group of women who sat at the feet of those who were on the front lines of the Civil Rights Movement. We carry the oral history, cultural values and wisdom passed down to us by some of the revolutionary leaders who turned the tide of American history. We are the Daughters of the Movement.

“This unique sisterhood is a podcast and a speaker series with a target audience of women of all ages and advocates for social justice. Through the lens of living in the Movement, we take deep dives into critical and controversial topics.”
