The Art of Activism: Hard Conversations Book Club 2017

$ 0.00

The Art of Activism: Hard Conversations Book Club reads a book each month that will illuminate a path for accessing, reclaiming, and deepening our shared humanity. We will spend this year learning things we have not known, so we can respond to other human beings from a place of knowing, and not from a place of fear.

We will meet online in a private Facebook Group, and on the third Sunday of each month we will have an interactive phone/web meeting to explore our responses to each book from 8-9pm Eastern. Those meetings will be recorded for those who cannot join us live.

All the books we will read in 2017 are written by women of color and represent a mix of non-fiction, fiction, and poetry.
