The Auburn Avenue Research Library, in collaboration with the Charis Books and More Independent Book Store, will host Author and Activist Charlene A. Carruthers as she discusses her publication Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements.

Drawing on Black intellectual and grassroots organizing traditions, 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.

Charlene A. Carruthers has spent over a decade developing leaders as an effective strategist, community organizer, and educator. She is the founding national director of the Black Youth Project 100, a leading organization of young activists in the movement for Black liberation. Her work has been featured in outlets including the Nation, NBC News, BBC News, Huffington Post, the New Yorker, Al Jazeera, Ebony, USA Today, and the Washington Post.

Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate at AARL @ Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History
Nov 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join Charis in welcoming Charlene A. Carruthers back for a second time to discuss Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements. by Charlene A. Carruthers.

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 also available for through Charis as a digital audiobook read by the author: https://libro.fm/audiobooks/9780807094693

This event is free and open to the public and is co-sponsored by the Auburn Ave Research Library.

Reclaiming Justice: Self-care for the resistance
Jan 18 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

This event has been rescheduled for 2019 – please see new event link here: https://www.facebook.com/events/687269284975067/

Reclaiming Justice: Self-Care for the Resistance
Atlanta,GA
June 25-29th, 2018 – 9am-5pm
Opening Gathering – Sunday, June 24th @ 7pm

Are you passionate about your community and collective well-being? Are you feeling overwhelmed and confused by these rapidly changing times? Do you wish you could connect with others and find creative ways to express all you are feeling, thinking and noticing?

Then come join us for a week of connection, play and creation with Interplay. This week-long program for people of all ages and diversities who are community activists, artists, practitioners, healers, social justice-lovin’, creative souls and beyond. We will co-create space together for our stories and collective wisdom to be shared. Through the philosophy and practice of Interplay, we will tap into our birthrights of movement, sound, song, story, dance and stillness – connecting to the wisdom of the body and what it has to tell us about navigating these challenging times with grace, ease, love and creativity.

Our week will include a variety of rich experiences – connecting with local groups and organizations in Atlanta and their creative resistance work, dipping into nature and playing with the wisdom of the wild, playing in different public places and space, and other spontaneous moments where anything is possible (a justice dance parade perhaps?!?). In all this, we will get the chance to explore social justice themes and ideas that are important to us as a collective as we put art into action. We will celebrate our communities, feed our collective imagination and learn what self-care for the resistance feels and looks like. Atlanta, home of The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, The National Center for Civil and Human Rights and so much more feels like a perfect place to gather for collective social action.

We welcome the largest spectrum of diversity – across political, social, economic, social boundaries as we appreciate the richness that emerges in the coming together and deep full-body-dialogue of folks and ways in which we walk in and experience the world differently.

Your team of quirky, creative and capable Interplay leaders will include Agnotti Cowie, Foluke Beveridge, Christine Gautreaux, and Natalie Abdou – local and international Interplay leaders who have shared and played in a diversity of community and social justice contexts.

The program is week-long although we have limited 1-day only spaces available for those who are unable to attend the week-long program. Scholarships and sliding scale options available.
Please contact Christine Gautreaux at christinegautreauxmsw@gmail.com or text at 770-256-9191 for registration and details.

Cost $500 or pay what you can (sliding scale higher or lower) for the week. Daily rate – $125.

We are excited to play with you soon!!
