What does it mean to be “of service”, to “civically engage”, to work towards “social justice”? Are these phrases synonymous with or critical of one another? In this series, we will read together pieces from writers, poets, teachers, and orators such as Jane Addams, Martin Luther King, Jr., Toni Cade Bambara, Eve Tuck, Gwendolyn Brooks, and Robin D.G. Kelley to explore how different thinkers residing in the United States have navigated through these complicated, human questions. By exploring their words, we will begin to craft our own sense of what it means to live with, and be responsible for, each other.
Held at Phebe’s Tavern & Grill, 359 Bowery, NYC
