Resistance & Resilience is a reading group founded with the intention of deconstructing writings with social justice-related concepts. Our desire is to invite people from the community to join our discussion, thus bringing many sets of experiences and knowledges into a safe and informative space. Resistance & Resilience meets on the first Thursday of the month from 6-7:30pm.
Hosted by Katie Gartner and Saera Hanlon, Resistance & Resilience invites the community to join them in reading Where We Stand: Class Matters by bell hooks. You can order a copy here.
Please note: if you purchase the book at Food For Thought, you'll receive it at a discounted price of $20. Just let us know that you're joining this group.
The book description is as follows: "Drawing on both her roots in Kentucky and her adventures with Manhattan Coop boards, Where We Stand is a successful black woman's reflection--personal, straight forward, and rigorously honest--on how our dilemmas of class and race are intertwined, and how we can find ways to think beyond them."
