Join us for a conversation between dear friends Janine de Novais and adrienne maree brown celebrating the release of de Novais’ new book Brave Community: Teaching for a Post-Racist Imagination.
Offering a research-based method for teaching, learning and working to confront racism that empowers and edifies, and practices tested across diverse settings (schools, colleges, museums, board rooms), Brave Community: Teaching for a Post-Racist Imagination is a book for anyone who wants to tackle racism and help others to do the same.
There will be a book signing after the event with books for purchase from Queens Museum Gift Shop by The August Tree.
