MCF Book Club: Reading for a Liberated Future

NationSwell is thrilled to partner with the Marguerite Casey Foundation to present the MCF Book Club series in New York City. Together, we will convene our communities to dive into thought-provoking books from dynamic authors from historically marginalized populations whose work centers radical, regenerative, and transformative approaches to community building.

Join our conversation with author Naomi Klein; scholar, author, activist, and 2020 MCF Freedom Scholar Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor; filmmaker, writer, and activist Astra Taylor; and Dr. Carmen Rojas, President & CEO of Marguerite Casey Foundation, as we attempt to make sense of this parallel social universe and chart a path toward shared purpose and power.
Black Women’s Stories of Police Violence and Public Silence

The Altman Building, Chelsea, NYC

Join our conversation with author Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw, Dr. Carmen Rojas, President & CEO of Marguerite Casey Foundation, and Ms. Rhanda Dormeus. Together, we’ll learn how we can incorporate an intersectional approach in our own work for justice — and how we can best lend our own voices in service of naming and ameliorating the violence that harms Black women and girls.
