CPL Writers & Readers Program Looks at How to Advance Justice

Sat 4/17 @ noon

The theme of the Cleveland Public Library’s Writers & Readers series this year is “justice,” an issue that seems to be more fraught and urgent by the day.

Its next program in the series will look at the importance of civic education and engagement in advancing the cause of justice. It will feature two speakers who’ve spent a lot of time thinking and writing about the issue.

Eddie Glaude Jr. is chairman of the Department of African-American Studies at Princeton University, as well as a columnist for TIME Magazine, an MSNBC contributor and author of Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American SoulIn a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America and Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own.

Caroline Randall Williams is a poet, young adult novelist, cookbook author, performance artist and activist, whose debut book, The Diary of B.B. Bright, Possible Princess, won the Harlem Book Fair’s Phillis Wheatley Prize; her second, Soul Food Love, won the NAACP Image Award.
