#BotM March 2018: “Assata”

Our #BookoftheMonth for March 2018 is about the life of activist Assata Shakur, a black revolutionary and powerful figure of the Black Power movement in the 60s. Her story, although mostly couched in previous periods of time, still resonate in today’s societal struggles with police brutality, mass incarceration and military style policing.

#BotM February 2018: “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?”

Our #BookoftheMonth for February 2018 is going to turn your understanding of Martin Luther King and his theology on its head. “Where Do We Go From Here? Chaos or Community?” by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of those classic pieces written by a great author that not many people quote even years later. King, well-known for his eloquent speeches and enduring leadership, details his criticism and path for reconciliation for the black community, white liberals, federal and local government, black power groups and a host of others.  I think we will all be forced to self examine where it is we think our community is headed and what part we are playing in its progress and possibly its decline.
