Novel Ideas: Black History Month

13 Feb 2018


Calling all book lovers and social justice changemakers! Join Novel Ideas, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh’s interactive, insightful book club with a focus on diverse, thought-provoking writers and subjects. Titles include non-fiction, fiction, graphic novels, and memoirs. Most are readily accessible, in various media forms, through our amazing regional libraries. Topics will range from current events and social movements to more personal glimpses of life and diverse people.
In honor of Black History Month, we will be discussing Freedom Is a Constant Struggle: Ferguson, Palestine, and the Foundations of a Movement by Angela Y. Davis
These newly collected essays, interviews, and speeches illuminate the connections between struggles against state violence and oppression throughout the world. A legendary activist in her own right, Angela Davis discusses the legacies of liberation struggles from the Black Freedom Movement to the South African anti-Apartheid movement.
