We continue our series with a roundtable discussion on the fight for social change across the African Diaspora. Are there parallels with America's Civil Rights Movement? Have we influenced each other?

For more, Farai Chideya talks with Peter Takirambudde, director of the African Division of Human Rights Watch; Gepsie Metellus, executive director for the Haitian Neighborhood Center; and Keisha-Khan Perry, assistant professor of Africana studies and anthropology at Brown University.
