Between the Lines: Shirley Sherrod with Esther Armah
Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The Schomburg Center, in partnership with Atria Books, Emotional Justice Unplugged, WBAI, and BET, presents Shirley Sherrod, author of The Courage To Hope: How I Stood Up to the Politics of Fear. Sherrod became a household name in 2010 when the National Media labeled her a reverse racist. She was accused of discriminating against white farmers; condemned by the NAACP, the Tea Party, the Obama administration, CNN, Fox, and a whole host of news outlets--and ultimately forced to resign. Join Sherrod for a provocative and powerful conversation with NYC Radio host, playwright, and award winning international journalist Esther Armah.
