Charlene Carruthers, BYP100 National Director, will discuss her upcoming debut book, Unapologetic: A Black, Queer and Feminist Mandate for Our Movement. 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. Charlene will also discuss BYP100’s local organizing work and her experience in social justice movements across the world.
