Capital B “Black”: Writing about Blackness with Hari Ziyad*
Thursday, December 10 from 6-7:30pm

Join Editor-in-Chief of RaceBaitr and author of the upcoming memoir Black Boy Out of Time Hari Ziyad for an interactive lecture on all that it means to center Blackness in your work and professional career, particularly in a world where it can further marginalize the already marginalized. What are the unmistakable rewards? The challenges? How do you learn to be adamant and immoveable in that choice?

*PLEASE NOTE: This event is exclusive to Black writers and artists. We ask that individuals who are not Black abstain from signing up.
