Join us for our virtual 2021 Community MLK Celebration event, a conversation with the author of New York Times Bestseller, I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness. Austin Channing Brown will speak to the task of building community out of chaos in this discussion moderated by Jaronda Miller-Bryant, Program Director of Engaged Scholarship at the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center.
I’m Still Here shot to the top 20 of Amazon’s bestsellers list, leading in its categories for months, and has received acclaim from Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and more. It has also been featured in OnBeing, The Chicago Tribune, WNYC, The Religion News Service, with Shondaland declaring it, “[a] deeply personal celebration of blackness that simultaneously sheds new light on racial injustice and inequality while offering hope for a better future.” It was also selected as a book of the month for Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine book club.
Thank you to all of the UVA offices whose support makes this event possible!
