    EPIP Philly | How We Fight White Supremacy Book Club

    Ever read a book and wonder who can I call to discuss? Look no further EPIP Philly has a book club! Everyone now has a place to talk through philanthropic related reads.

    As part of the inaugural PHLanthropy week, we are reading How We Fight White Supremacy: A Field Guide to Black Resistance, a collection of essays and interviews. Feel free to read all of the essays, one or just come to discuss how you fight and dream about freedom. We hope to see you at other PHLantropy Week events.

    More about How We Fight White Supremacy: This celebration of Black resistance, from protests to art to sermons to joy, offers a blueprint for the fight for freedom and justice -- and ideas for how each of us can contribute. Many of us are facing unprecedented attacks on our democracy, our privacy, and our hard-won civil rights. If you're Black in the US, this is not new. As Colorlines editors Akiba Solomon and Kenrya Rankin show, Black Americans subvert and resist life-threatening forces as a matter of course. In these pages, leading organizers, artists, journalists, comedians, and filmmakers offer wisdom on how they fight White supremacy. It's a must-read for anyone new to resistance work, and for the next generation of leaders building a better future.
