Author as Activist: The Art of NOW

  • Date

    July 28

  • Time

    7:00 pm

  • Location


Join authors Afua Ansong, Eli Nixon, and Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie online for a conversation moderated by What Cheer Writers Club Advisory Committee members Frank Maradiaga and Cherie Rowe on the intersections between writing, art, and activism. How do contemporary authors advocate for social justice in their work and in the world? Is just writing enough? How can our words work for change, what are our responsibilities to the public as writers and citizens, and how can we assess the effectiveness of our contributions? Learn how these authors have found inspiration during political and personal upheavals, where they turn for guidance and support as activist artists, and how to best channel your own passions for equity and social justice into creative practice.
