Black Agrarianism: Roots, Resistance, and Regeneration
Food First – As part of our Land Justice: Re-imagining Land, Food, and the Commons in the United States national book tour, we are excited to present Black Agrarianism: Roots, Resistance, and Regeneration for Land Justice! Land is power. For African descendants, roots, resistance, and regeneration are deeply connected to the land. Over the past 400 years, many forms of resistance against white supremacist capitalism by African descendants have been rooted in the land, nature, and agrarian identity. Land has served as an essential element for maintaining traditions and identities that have been imperative to resistance and regeneration from slavery into the present. For this stop on the book tour, authors, farmers, and activists will delve further into the intersections of land, food and racial justice, discussing the historical and present role that land ownership and access has played in the radical Black agrarian liberation movements in America. With authors Tracy McCurty and Dãnia Davy from the Black Belt Justice Center, Savi Horne from the North Carolina Association of Black Lawyers Land Loss Prevention Project, and Richael Faithful, healing artist and attorney; editors Justine Williams and Eric-Holt Gimenez from Food First; plus Savanah Williams from South of the Ferry Farm and Christopher Bradshaw from Dreaming Out Loud and the DC Food Policy Council. Cover Art image by Jonathan Green. What: Black Agrarianism: Roots, Resistance, and Regeneration for Land Justice When: Monday, September 25th from 6:00-8:00 Where: Busboys and Poets-14th & V, 2021 14th St. NW, Washington, DC

Sofi Oksanen for Norma
Kramerbooks & Afterwords Café – Presented in conjunction with the Finnish Embassy From the internationally best-selling author of Purge and When the Doves Disappeared, a spellbinding new novel set in present-day Helsinki, about a young woman with a fantastical secret who is trying to solve the mystery of her mother's death. When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood--and the moods of those around her--moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother's funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life. Setting out to reconstruct Anita's final months--sifting through puzzling cell phone records, bank statements, video files--Norma begins to realize that her mother knew more about her hair's powers than she let on: a sinister truth beyond Norma's imagining. As Sofi Oksanen leads us ever more deeply into Norma's world, weaving together past and present, she gives us a dark family drama that is a searing portrait of both the exploitation of women's bodies and the extremes to which people will go for the sake of beauty.
