Revolutionary Mothering: Atlanta Book Launch Charis Books
at 7:30 PM
1189 Euclid Ave NE, Atlanta, Georgia 30307
Join us for a celebratory conversation with Alexis Pauline Gumbs, co-editor of Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines, an anthology that centers mothers of color and marginalized mothers’ voices in exploring connections between movement work and the work of parenting. Revolutionary Mothering argues that the challenges faced by movements working for anti-violence, anti-imperialist, and queer liberation, as well as racial, economic, reproductive, gender, and food justice are the same challenges that marginalized mothers face every day. Alexis will read selections from the anthology and her own Revolutionary Mother Pauline McKenzie will share about her work as a doula and therapist. Members of the Love Spirit Balm collective who are featured in the book will also be present. Dr. Gumbs will lead us in a community discussion about mothering, parenting, and the revolutionary movements we are all a part of.
This is a Charis Circle Whole Children, Strong Families Event and the suggested donation is $5 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All are welcome to attend.
