RECONSTRUCTION IN OUR TIMES: A CPE TRACK AT THE 2017 ZINN BOOK FAIR

SAVE THE DATE!
November 19, 2017

n Campus, 1125 Valencia St.

 

Center for Political Education is excited to bring together authors from across the country with Bay Area organizers for “Black Reconstruction in Our Times”, a 5-session track at this year’s Howard Zinn Book Fair on November 19, at City College of San Francisco, Mission Campus.

Last spring CPE  organized the Reading Black Reconstruction Study Group during which 50 local organizers and activists took on a collective study of WEB DuBois’ monumental and essential book about the struggle against slavery and for Black political power at the turn of the 20th century. The resounding salience of the themes of DuBois’ Black Reconstruction in America for our times encouraged us to propose a track inspired by the book and the study group for the 2017 Howard Zinn Book Fair in November. The five-session track will put the authors of new works in conversation with organizers to help explore the Reconstruction themes of land, education, labor, political power, and resistance.

We hope you and your friends, family, comrades, and co-workers will join us this year at the 2017 Howard Zinn Book Fair for BLACK RECONSTRUCTION IN OUR TIMES!
