Ari Shavit

An award-winning journalist, and columnist and editorial board member for the Haaretz newspaper, Ari Shavit is the author of the best-selling book, My Promised Land.

He is a leading voice from Israel's political left. A frequent critic of Israel's government, he is also one of Israel's most vocal defenders.

Outside of Israel, however, Shavit faces increasingly ugly rhetoric, being called a "war criminal" and worse simply because he's a Jewish Israeli. Shavit believes the BDS campaign vilifies not only Israel, but Jews and the Jewish community in general.

Rev. Kenneth Flowers

The Rev. Kenneth Flowers, who worked with Coretta Scott King at the Martin Luther King Center and now heads Detroit's Greater New Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church, is an outspoken critic of the BDS campaign.

A leader in the Progressive National Baptist Convention, Rev. Flowers has fought against racism and calls out bias and discrimination when he sees it.

Rev. Flowers sees the BDS campaign against Israel as biased and anti-Jewish.

No charge for attending. No funds will be solicited.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
