Talk on the Mothers of the Civil Rights Movement w/ author Anna Malaika Tubbs

New Book: "The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X,
and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation"

Wed, Feb 3 @ 6:00 pm PST

Cost: FREE

RSVP: https://commonwealthclub.secure.force.com/ticket/#/instances/a0F3j00001GYEUaEAP

Much has been written about James Baldwin, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X,
but virtually nothing has been said about the extraordinary women who raised them
to be the leaders they became.

Join us in conversation with Anna Malaika Tubbs as she celebrates Black motherhood in her new book, "The Three Mothers". Baldwin's mother Berdis, King's mother Alberta, and Malcolm X’s mother Louise raised their sons with the hope of helping them to survive in a society that would deny their humanity from the very beginning. The Black mothers who raised America’s most pivotal heroes each represent a piece of history left untold and a celebration of
Black motherhood long overdue.
