Black Liberation Theologians, Ethicists, and Religion scholars often explore the intersection of race, class and gender. Because our work deals with this matrix of varied identities, the work upon which many of us relies for insight and methodology is under threat. Book banning is a very real and pressing issue.

About this event

  • 1 hour

AAPF will host our second Author Talk as part of our “Books Unbanned: From Freedom Riders to Freedom Readers” book club with the author of Dear Martin, Nic Stone. Please join us for this conversation with Nic Stone about racial identity, racial consciousness, and coming of age.

Books Unbanned: From Freedom Riders to Freedom Readers is a book club series intended to educate, enlighten, and empower all ages to engage in reading and critical thinking about invaluable pieces of literature and contemporary issues. Honoring the sacrifice and commitment of the Freedom Riders who risked their lives in pursuit of civil justice, we come together as Freedom Readers to create a long-lasting impact to build open and inclusive learning communities that together will shore up the foundations of multiracial democracy. We seek to bring awareness of the banning of books authored by Black and LGBTQ+ authors and to increase critical thinking, voter engagement, and understanding of how the suppression of knowledge connects to other forms of oppression, namely voter suppression and anti-CRT legislation.

*Registrants will receive the link to join the talk by email on the day of the event
