At this extraordinary event, bestselling feminist author Rebecca Traister will discuss the history of women’s anger with Dr. Brittney Cooper, the author of Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers her Superpower. Cooper has been named to the Root.com’s Root 100, an annual list of Top Black Influencers, and her TED talk on “the racial politics of time” has had over 850,000 views.
Rebecca Traister’s popular historical narrative Good and Mad struck a nerve on its publication last October, in a year when the #MeToo movement and Time’s Up were gaining traction. The book hit the bestseller list in the first month of publication, and Traister has appeared frequently on TV and radio to discuss rage and its role in women’s slow rise to political power. From the early suffragettes marching on the White House to the office workers who left their buildings after Clarence Thomas’ Supreme Court confirmation, history’s events make clear the galvanizing force of women’s collective anger. Together, Traister and Cooper will offer an illuminating perspective on the role that rage plays in feminism today.Buy tickets/get more info now
