Hosted by the Black Archives

Jamala with Jeri Persley and Diane Burkholder, members of One Struggle-KC.

I was back in Kansas City for a second book signing, this one hosted by the Black Archives of Mid-America. The Black Archives was the vision of a fellow Central classmate Horace Peterson III who founded it in 1974. BA is now located in the historic 18th & Vine District, a stone’s throw from my parents first apartment when they migrated from the South.

Special thanks to Glenn North at the Black Archives for creating the vibe. There was critical support from Justin Stein (Jobs with Justice), Diane Burkholder (One Struggle-KC) and Keith Brown-El (Jaws of Justice-KKFI). And I can’t forget Ridiculously Delicious who catered the reception. Working together, they made it an amazing evening.

Special shout-outs to my peeps from the One Struggle-KC, Jobs with Justice, National Black United Front-KC Chapter, St. Paul Presbyterian Church, Central High School, Dr. Gene Chavez and his counseling students from Webster University-KC  campus and many others who filled the room to listen and to engage in a discussion about where this nation is at this juncture in our history: The titan clash between white supremacy and racial justice.

Prosperos Bookstore in Kansas City is now selling Ferguson is America: Roots of Rebellion.

If you took photos at the event, please tag Jamala or feel free to share in the Facebook photo album.
