Tuesday September 4, 2018 07:30 PM EDT
Cost: $5,

From the venue:

Join Charis in welcoming Charlene A. Carruthers and Mary Hooks for an intimate conversation about Black, Queer, Feminist movement building for this moment and for what comes next! We will be celebrating the release of Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements. Drawing on Black intellectual and grassroots organizing traditions, including the Haitian Revolution, the US civil rights movement, and LGBTQ rights and feminist movements, Unapologetic challenges all of us engaged in the social justice struggle to make the movement for Black liberation more radical, more queer, and more feminist. This book provides a vision for how social justice movements can become sharper and more effective through principled struggle, healing justice, and leadership development. It also offers a flexible model of what deeply effective organizing can be, anchored in the Chicago model of activism, which features long-term commitment, cultural sensitivity, creative strategizing, and multiple cross-group alliances. And Unapologetic provides a clear framework for activists committed to building transformative power, encouraging young people to see themselves as visionaries and leaders. Unapologetic is available for pre-order through Charis as a hardbackbook https://www.charisbooksandmore.com/book/9780807019412 or a digital audiobook: https://libro.fm/audiobooks/9780807094693. This is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Event. The suggested donation is $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
