Virtual Social Justice Book Club
November 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CST
We invite you to participate in Austin Public Library’s Social Justice Book Club! This month, we are reading The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century written by Grace Lee Boggs. This title is available for free as a physical checkout and as a downloadable audiobook with your Austin Public Library Card.
In this powerful, deeply humanistic book, Grace Lee Boggs, a legendary figure in the struggle for justice in America, shrewdly assesses the current crisis—political, economical, and environmental—and shows how to create the radical social change we need to confront new realities. A vibrant, inspirational force, Boggs has participated in all of the twentieth century’s major social movements—for civil rights, women’s rights, workers’ rights, and more. She draws from seven decades of activist experience, and a rigorous commitment to critical thinking, to redefine “revolution” for our times. From her home in Detroit, she reveals how hope and creativity are overcoming despair and decay within the most devastated urban communities. Her book is a manifesto for creating alternative modes of work, politics, and human interaction that will collectively constitute the next American Revolution.
