Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements
Author
Charlene Carruthers
ISBN
9780807019412
A manifesto from one of America's most influential activists which disrupts 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.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Charlene CarruthersPublisher: Beacon PressPublished: 08/28/2018ISBN: 9780807019412Pages: 192Weight: 0.75lbsSize: 8.60h x 5.70w x 0.90dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 05/21/2018Kirkus Reviews 07/01/2018Booklist 09/01/2018 pg. 14
