Powell’s Books Presents Shaun King - An Evening With the Activist and Journalist
As a leader of the Black Lives Matter movement, Shaun King has become one of the most recognizable and powerful voices on the front lines of civil rights in our time. His commitment to reforming the justice system and making America a more equitable place has brought challenges and triumphs, soaring victories and crushing defeats. Throughout his wide-ranging activism, King’s commentary remains rooted in both exhaustive research and abundant passion.
In his new book, Make Change, King offers an inspiring look at the moments that have shaped his life and considers the ways social movements can grow and evolve in this hyper-connected era. He shares stories from his efforts leading the Raise the Age campaign and his work fighting police brutality, while providing a road map for how to stay sane, safe, and motivated even in the worst of political climates. By turns infuriating, inspiring, and educational, Make Change will resonate with those who believe that America can — and must — do better.
In a presentation based on his new book, the activist and journalist reflects on the events that made him one of the most prominent social justice leaders of our time and lays out a clear action plan for you to join the fight.
Price includes a copy of King’s Make Change. Books distributed at event.
