Untold Truths Behind Black Student Activism in the 1960s

Untold Truths Behind Black Student Activism in the 1960s

Marilyn Allman Maye, Harold S. Buchanan, Jannette O. Domingo and Marilyn Holifield with Brent Staples
 

Henry Louis Gates, Jr. has called Seven Sisters and a Brother “compelling portraits of the lives of the young people who risked their futures to make a difference.”

Four of the eight authors will sit down with and Brent Staples of the New Times Times to discuss their experiences as activists in an elite liberal arts college in the 1960s. When the eight students at Swarthmore College demanded a Black Studies curriculum and protested the decreased enrollment and hiring of African Americans in 1969, the peaceful protest was misreported through a negative lens. This long overdue choral memoir chronicles their eight-day sit-in. It is a story of great relevance at a time in which first-generation college students and millennial activists have demonstrated a desire for increased political engagement. According to Congresswoman Donna Shalala, “Theirs is a story of the power of collective action, the value of shared identity, and the thrill of progress.”

A book signing follows the event.

Writing from the Inside Out – Upper Arlington – Nita Sweeney

CLASS WILL BE HELD JANUARY 19, 2020

REGISTRATION REQUIRED!

“I fully recommend Nita Sweeney, a wonderful teacher who I asked to bring writing practice to Ohio. She has studied with me intensively for many years and understands the fears and hopes of writers. Her workshops benefit beginners as well as long-time practitioners.” – Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones and Wild Mind

Does that nasty inner critic keep you from writing? If so, spend an afternoon learning “writing practice” with Nita Sweeney, MFA, author of the memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink. Nita is a writing coach and long-time student of Natalie Goldberg. “Writing practice” reduces stress around writing, increases productivity, and tames the inner critic. In-class writing practice, optional reading aloud with no critique, and short periods of meditation help students access their wild writing minds. No previous writing or meditation experience is necessary. Course content varies to accommodate returning students. Open to adults of all ages. Bring a pen, a notebook, and an open mind for a day filled with creative fun!

Copies of Nita’s book will be available for sale and signing. If you already have a copy, bring it for her to autograph.

For more information or to register call 614-583-5300.
