November’s study group uses “Five Questions” from Charlene Carruthers’ recently released “Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements” a manifesto intended to disrupt political, economic, and social norms by reimagining the Black Radical Tradition.
“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.”

Fallowship is a curated gathering where Black and Brown folks can discuss Reproductive Justice themed topics. The space’s goal is to foster radicalization of millennials, with the intention of mobilizing us for action. With so much focus on voting, the narrative of participation in civic life can be very limiting. Fallowship is a space for us to discuss important topics while also conjuring a community where we support each other with information and presence.
Opportunities for folks to plug into local events would be offered, to continue your work outside the event space and grow our respective communities capacity.
