Join Metro United Way and Park Community Credit Union for our next virtual Beyond Buzzwords event featuring Austin Channing Brown, New York Times bestselling author of I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness and the Executive Producer of web series The Next Question. I’m Still Here is recognized as a critical resource in the modern fight for justice and has received acclaim from Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and more. It’s been declared a “deeply personal celebration of blackness that simultaneously sheds new light on racial injustice and inequality while offering hope for a better future.”
By using an intentional mix of humor, pop-culture, storytelling and audience engagement, Austin evokes thought, feeling and action as she awakens people to the current realities of systemic racism and the everyday actions which allow racism to thrive.
