The New York Chapter of the National Association of Kawaida Organizations in conjunction with the International African Arts Festival will host its community education forum on Sunday, Sept. 15, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m at the Multipurpose Room of Restoration Plaza, 1368 Fulton St. in Brooklyn.

The forum will highlight four historical events: The 1619 arrivals of indentured Africans in Ft. Monroe/Jamestown, Virginia, the 1919 Red Summer in which hundreds of African Americans were killed in white rioting and racist violence, the launching of the Black Star Line by Marcus Mosiah Garvey that same year, and the 64th anniversary of the Emmett Till murder and trial.

A minimum fee of $10 is requested. Call 718-789-3264/638-6700 or email nakoinfogroup@yahoo.com for information.
