Brittany Cooper / Eloquent Rage (in-conversation with Alicia Garza)

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Bindery is thrilled to welcome Brittney Cooper to read from and discuss Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower. She will be in-conversation with Alicia Garza; please join us!

In the tradition of bell hooks, Roxane Gay and Audre Lorde, America’s leading young black feminist celebrates dissent—both personal and public—reminding us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting.





"Cooper personifies what Sonia Sanchez called 'homegirl and hand-grenade'—here, like the homegirl she is, Cooper gives us the uncensored truth about how America has become what it is today, and reminds us in no uncertain terms that Black people, and particularly Black women, have the brilliance, foresight, and vision to bring a different America to fruition, should we choose to use our powers for good rather than evil." —Alicia Garza, Special Projects Director, National Domestic Workers Alliance and Co-Founder, Black Lives Matter







Brittney Cooper writes a popular monthly column on race, gender, and politics for Cosmo. A professor of Women's and Gender Studies and Africana Studies at Rutgers University, she co-founded the Crunk Feminist Collective, and her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Ebony.com, and TheRoot.com, among many others.

Alicia Garza is an Oakland-based organizer, writer, public speaker and freedom dreamer who is currently the Special Projects Director for the National Domestic Workers Alliance, the nation’s leading voice for dignity and fairness for the millions of domestic workers in the United States. Garza, along with Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, also co-founded the Black Lives Matter network, a globally recognized organizing project that focuses on combatting anti-Black state-sanctioned violence and the oppression of all Black people. Since the rise of the BLM movement, Garza has become a powerful voice in the media. Her articles and interviews have been featured in Time, Mic, The Guardian, Elle.com, Essence, Democracy Now!, and The New York Times.
