Event Description

Falaka Fattah is the founder of House of Umoja, a Philadelphia activist, and mother of Congressman Chaka Fattah. Falaka Fattah’s great grandmother married the brother of Frances Ellen Watkins Harper’s husband. Every generation of the Fattah family has named one of their children after Frances Harper since then. They have treasured the family connection to Frances Harper and have been inspired and motivated in their community service by this nineteenth century artist and political activist. Moonstone is honored to present a program on this subject featuring a showing of A Place To Go Home To, a film by Kimmika Williams-Witherspoon on House of Umoja, and speakers honoring Falaka Fattah and the traditions inspired by Frances Ellen Watkins Harper.
