Using History to Break Its Cycle (virtual)

Education, agitprop, individual testimonies, evidence. There are many ways to break cycles of oppression. These authors combine their personal histories and talents with a determination to illuminate and challenge social inequities lingering from the past. Join authors Nate Powell (Save it for Later), Sharon Lee De La Cruz (I’m a Wild Seed), Beka Feathers (Re: Constitutions), and Dr. Rebecca Hall (Wake), in a wide-ranging discussion on understanding the historical roots of contemporary life in an effort to chart new and equitable social pathways into the future. Moderated by Calvin Reid (Publishers Weekly).
