Event description

Description

Austin Channing Brown is the author of Im Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness. She began her pursuit of racial justice in college with an experience called Sankofa- a three-day bus trip exploring Black history sites throughout the South. This transformative pilgrimage inspired Austin to dedicate her life to the legacy of Black freedom.

After graduating from North Park University, she earned a masters in social justice from Marygrove College in Detroit, MI. Building on her graduate work, Austin has served in a number of nonprofits focused on homelessness, youth programming, and higher ed.

Her first book shot to the top 20 of Amazon's bestsellers list. It has received acclaim from Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and a host of other reviewers. It has been featured in On Being, The Chicago Tribune, Shondaland, Popsugar, and more. Even Chelsea Clinton and Brené Brown have tweeted praise!

In conversation with Scot Sherman, Austin Channing Brown will discuss ways that we, in a world still governed by systems of racial oppression, can begin to see there’s another way.

Books will be available for purchase and signing after the program.
