Feminista Jones is a Philadelphia-based social worker, feminist writer, public speaker, and community activist. She is an award-winning blogger and the author of the novel Push the Button, the poetry collection The Secret of Sugar Water, and the highly anticipated Reclaiming Our Space: How Black Feminists Are Changing the World From the Tweets to the Streets (Beacon, Jan 2019). Her work centers Black American culture, critical race theory, intersectionality, women’s health and well-being, and she sits on the board of the Wayfinder Foundation, a grant-making organization that invests in women making a difference in their underserved communities.
Join us for an evening of conversation surrounding her work and how it relates to our community followed by a reception. A limited quantity of her newest book will be available for purchase after the talk.
This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited. There will be an overflow room available with a live stream of the event if needed.
