Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement
by Tarana Burke Author
In this powerful memoir from a central figure in the 'Me Too' movement, author Tarana Burke shares her story and how she came to be an activist fighting against sexual violence and rape culture. Burke, working with Black youth, saw the harm that was being done to others by the racist and sexist systems that govern our society and culture, but before Burke could step forward to seek change for others she first had to acknowledge the wrongs that had been done to her. This book documents the effort on Burke's part to return to and exorcise her own traumas so that she could be a more effective fighter for change in the broader struggle of the 'Me Too' movement.

If folks have any events they'd like to suggest for us to attend or places you'd like us to check out, please email- that's the best way to ask. Thanks!
Actually, if you can't come to us, we'll come to you. Salem College in Winston-Salem NC has an ambitious group of all women writers (the Center Associates writing group). Personally, I'm starting up my own artsy ezine of sorts that will have a biannual anthology of randomness (I hope). My group was really interested in a presentation I did about lit mags vs zines. So maybe we can take a writing day up to Richmond VA or to Raleigh NC. Or maybe you could have an educational seminar along with a fundraising event for my zine that hopes to be brought to life asap. Anyway hope to see you. I'm a big fan.
PLEASE COME TO SARASOTA !!
Aren't you guys coming to Philly Zine Fest??
