Dalit Solidarity Forum and ICWI are proud to present three events to commemorate the 50th year anniversary of the founding of the Dalit Panthers. Fifty years ago, the Dalit Panthers used the 25th anniversary of India’s independence to put forward a dream for liberation, not only for India’s Dalits but for all the historically oppressed communities. They posed the question: What did independence mean for India’s Dalits? In this year, even as the Indian government flaunts all its achievements on 75 years of India’s independence, we want to revisit the dreams of the Dalit Panthers: What are the real questions we should be asking of India’s people? What is the real progress India has made in 75 years and for whom? What should the future look like and how do we shape it? It is to answer these questions that we are featuring a range of Dalit, Bahujan, Adivasi, and Vimukt voices, through events and videos on social media.
There are no upcoming events at this time
