Suren Moodliar notes:

I should say that honoring Charles Yancey is something of a personal matter for me – in the mid-1980s, Charles Yancey helped lead Boston to disinvest from the original Apartheid state, South Africa. As a South African, I feel personally indebted to his efforts. Over the years, he was one of a handful of dependable city councilors to defend working people, communities of color and immigrants. Also joining us that night is the renowned scholar activist, Patrick Bond, who is based in South Africa but whose writings on Palestine, Climate Change, Water, Development, Work Class Struggles and many other topics have helped solidify a pole of radical thinking that serves all our movements! Junot Diaz’s comment about e5, “A pillar of Boston’s progressive community, encuentro5 is the dream of solidarity made true…” applies equally to Councilor Yancey and to Patrick Bond!
