Three years ago this July, in the aftermath of the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates on the front porch of his own home by Cambridge Police Sergeant James Crowley, President Obama invited the two men to the White House for a meeting over beer to discuss the incident. 

At the same time in Philadelphia, as part of its MLK365 Program, Global Citizen organized a Beer Summit in Center City Philadelphia for concerned citizens to meet, mingle, and discuss race relations in our city and throughout America.

On Wednesday, August 1, Global Citizen will continue that discussion about race, class and power and how we all can overcome the barriers that threaten to divide us. The conversation will feature Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill. Among topics of discussion, will be his most recent book, The Classroom and the Cell: Conversations on Black Life in America. Find it on Amazon:
