Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements
Charlene A. Carruthers, founding national director of the BYP100 (Black Youth Project 100), is joined by Glory Edim, founder of Well-Read Black Girl, to talk about Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements, her guide as a 21st-century activist to upending mainstream ideas about race, class, and gender in order to carve out a path to collective liberation.
Drawing on Black intellectual and grassroots organizing traditions, including the Haitian Revolution, the US civil rights movement, and LGBTQ rights and feminist movements, Unapologetic challenges all of us engaged in the social justice struggle to make the movement for Black liberation more radical, more queer, and more feminist. This book provides a vision for how social justice movements can become sharper and more effective through principled struggle, healing justice, and leadership development. It also offers a flexible model of what deeply effective organizing can be, anchored in the Chicago model of activism, which features long-term commitment, cultural sensitivity, creative strategizing, and multiple cross-group alliances. And Unapologetic provides a clear framework for activists committed to building transformative power, encouraging young people to see themselves as visionaries and leaders.
