Come to The Public School for a conversation with legendary activist Selma James on the themes of her recent PM Press book ‘Sex, Race & Class’.

Selma James comes to the U.S. as part of a campaign to value caregiving work and eliminate mothers’ and children’s poverty, building support for two bills currently in Congress: The Rise Out of Poverty Act (RISE Act HR 3573) introduced by Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) and the Women’s Option to Raise Kids Act (WORK Act HR 4370) introduced by Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA).

Selma James is the founder of the International Wages for Housework Campaign and helped launch the Global Women’s Strike. She is the author of numerous publications, including The Power of Women and the Subversion of Community, Strangers and Sisters, and Wageless of the World.

Preface by Marcus Rediker: professor of Atlantic History, Univ. of Pittsburgh; author of Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Many-Headed Hydra, & Villains of All Nations. Intro. by Nina López co-coordinator of the Global Women’s Strike & coauthor The Milk of Human Kindness.
