Event description

Description

Rev. Dr. Alice Belcher’s insight as an expert in the prevention of domestic violence and sexual assault otherwise referred to as family violence prevention is here with her release of The Alice Belcher Family Violence Library. This library is a collection of actionable, resourceful and thought-provoking literature, which expounds on the dialogue of violence prevention within families of African descent. The books in this library are meant to be shared with, educators, allies, and families in an expansive effort to demolish violence within families.

Dr. Belcher uses her knowledge as a researcher and survivor, to highlight the genre of family violence prevention using mixed method research. From the first book, Family Violence Prevention: For African American Communities, readers will gain insight and information on family violence prevention as an expanded strategy to ending family violence. This book is a tool for self-study and coordinated classroom study, in the exploration of family violence prevention beyond intervention.

This first book is written through the lens of what Dr. Belcher has coined, “The Black Female Activist Lens”, as she acknowledges how acts of violence perpetrated by abusers, coupled with socioeconomic complexities, continue to plague and devastate black families. Dr. Belcher wants to arm families, allies and advocates with substantive tools to empower them to end family violence; thus, her contribution to the cause is with continued advocacy and the release of the Alice Belcher Family Library.

Come and meet Dr. Rev. Alice Belcher at the launch celebration of her newest book and library series. Grab a copy of the book and have it personally inscribed by the author, enjoy refreshments, open readings, giveaways and conversation with the author on December 1st, 2017 from 5:30pm-8:00 pm at 4355 W. Bradley Rd, at the Lois and Tom Dolan Community Center. THIS IS A FREE EVENT, but we do ask that you RSVP. You may order a copy of the book before the event at www.alicebelcher.com; however, copies will be available onsite.

We look forward to seeing you there.
