Recording of a panel discussion between Susan Glisson, Joe Szakos and Rydell Payne during the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2009 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Glisson, Szakos and Payne share their views on community organizing, what it has been in the past and what it should be in the future.
Excerpt: “Community organizing is concerned with empowering local people to challenge their own oppression, to have the greatest control over the decisions that affect their lives. As exemplified in SNCK it is non-charismatic, tedious, everyday, often unrewarded work…[Ella] Baker called it group-centered leadership, rather than a leader-centered group.”
