Books & Breakfast: Black Revolutionary Women Thinkers Additional Reading



On Saturday, January 28th BLM Nashville and Protect the Culture hosted a Books & Breakfast on Black Revolutionary Women thinkers. We read and discussed works from Angela Davis, Assata Shakur, bell hooks, Audre Lorde, Octavia Butler, and Kimberle Crenshaw. Over 75 people joined us as we learned and grew together.


Many have asked for additional reading, so we wanted to provide a few places people could turn to for some additional reading:
