What is it going to take? An Author Talk with Bakari Sellers
As we continue to ask what is it going to take? we cannot only focus on the major cities and urban settings, and Bakari Sellers’ book MY VANISHING COUNTRY (Amistad; May 19, 2020) offers insights into an often forgotten area, the rural Black Belt (once a reference to fertile soil, but now known as the chain of the nation’s most impoverished states). MY VANISHING COUNTRY is Sellers’ poignant ode to his father, a significant figure of the Civil Rights movement; a roaring ballad to the abandoned rural South; and a moving reflection on fatherhood.
Join us for this timely conversation, moderated by W. Teddy McDaniel, III, President and CEO of the Urban League of Central Carolinas.
