From the organizers:
Please join the Burdock Book Collective and the UAB Institute for Human Rights in welcoming Charlene A. Carruthers to Birmingham for an invitation into Black, Queer, Feminist movement building for this moment and beyond!
Charlene Carruthers is a strategist, author and a leading organizer in today’s Black liberation movement. Charlene is also author of the bestselling book, “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.
This event is free and open to the public!
