Teach-In: In Commemoration of Black August

Thank you to everyone who participated in last week’s Black August commemoration teach-in! Facilitated by Micaela Stevenson and Stephanie Younger, we were joined by Ruby Sales to discuss her involvement in the Southern Freedom Movement. We shared what Black August means to us, what we’ve been doing to honor Black resistance, freedom fighters and political prisoners and compiled a list of what we’ve been reading. Watch the recording of the teach-in.


What We’ve Been Reading

  • Black Bourgeois by E. Franklin Frazier
  • Murder Incorporated by Mumia Abu Jamal
  • Black on Both Sides: A Racial History of Trans Identity by C. Really Snorton
