For February we are participating in a community-wide read! Our group will be discussing the book The Wretched of the Earth by Frantz Fanon on February 21st at 2pm in the IMC building. The following weekend, we’ll connect with other groups and individuals who also discussed the book for a keynote lecture by Lou Turner on Friday night. Then on Saturday, join us for all or some of the events that include lunch with Dawn Blackman, a student activist panel and a walk to Randolph Street Community Garden.
Our book for March is Taking Sides: Revolutionary Solidarity and the Poverty of Liberalism Edited by Cindy Milstein. It is a collection of articles; some of which you may have already read!
Cindy (and possibly Michael) will join us for a critical discussion in C-U on March 22nd at 7:00pm in Red Herring Vegetarian Restaurant (1209 W. Oregon St. Urbana)
Our discussion will be followed by a casual open mic and refreshments.
