Jabari Asim - We Can't Breathe: On Black Lives, White Lies, and the Art of Survival

Upcoming Event
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Focusing on the history and culture of black life in America, Asim’s essays testify to the African-American community’s strength, resilience, and beauty. Author of The N Word, former editor at The Washington Post, and editor in chief of the NAACP’s Crisis magazine—not to mention the beloved children’s book author of titles like Whose Knees Are These? and Whose Toes are Those?—Asim explores topics including the importance of black fathers and community, the significance of black writers and stories, jokes and deceptions in black life, and the struggles of the black body. Together, these eight pieces work beyond white master narratives to assert the overlooked truths of black experience.
