'The Almighty Black P Stone Nation' Book Launch NEW DATE
Due to the snow storm, we will be rescheduling the Chicago book launch of The Almighty Black P Stone Nation, co-authored by Natalie Y. Moore and Lance Williams, for Monday, February 7 (7-9pm). The authors will join in a conversation about the creation of the book, moderated by Salim Muwakkil, Senior Editor, In These Times, and host of "The Salim Muwakkil Show", WVON Radio.
The book tells the story of how the Stones, a group of teens from the Woodlawn neighborhood, "built a powerful organization that united 21 individual gangs into a virtual nation." The book explores how the members were variously perceived as criminals, brainwashed terrorists, victims of their circumstances, and champions of social change by different racial and socioeconomic groups.
A reception will immediately follow the program, and copies of The Almighty Black P Stone Nation will be available for purchase.
This event is sponsored by the Ellen Stone Belic Institute for the Study of Women & Gender in the Arts and Media at Columbia College Chicago. It is free and open to the public and is accessible for persons with handicaps. Please enter on Blackstone.
