The Huntington Woods Peace, Citizenship & Education Project is planning a Celebration of International Peace Day on Saturday, September 21st at The Swords into Plowshares Gallery. It will take place from 11:00am to 2pm and it is called The Possibility of Peace – A Detroit Celebration of International Peace Day. We would love to have your participation. Please join us and represent your group by bringing a reading, a poem or a song to inspire peace. At 12 noon we will join in the Minute of Silence/Moment of Peace which is happening in each time zone, resulting in a “Peace Wave” around the world. This will be followed by further poetry readings and a ukulele sing-a-long. We will then march to Campus Martius and back or gather at the corner of Adams and Woodward to pass out literature or handouts to those passing by while displaying our peace signs

**April 20, 1537, Spanish "explorers" set out with 50 kidnapped Africans to settle in Florida, then a Spanish colony. The Africans came in chains. **August 20, 1619, 20 kidnapped Africans arrived in Virginia, part of English North America. They were sold as slaves to a tobacco planter. **For almost 332 years, slavery was a legal fact, dominating every aspect of human life, North and South. **The phenomenal wealth produced in the slave trade and from slave labor provided the basis on which American capitalism grew up and spread. **The peculiar form under which all labor is exploited today in this country traces back to the way slave labor was organized. **The legacy of slavery lives with us still -- how could it not? Legal emancipation happened only 154 years ago.

We've seen the reports that Detroit children have higher lead levels than children in other cities, but why is that and how can we address it? Join Detroit Public Library, Wayne State's CURES Center, and the Ecology Center as we talk about lead exposure through water sources and home exposures. Learn about how families are being exposed to lead and what possible outcomes for our children are. We will discuss what we can do as individuals, some local resources that are available, and how we can better advocate for ourselves to our government officials
