Join us for the launch of the new book, "Community as Rebellion: A Syllabus for Surviving Academia as a Woman of Color", by Latinx Studies scholar Lorgia García Peña in conversation with Angela Y. Davis and Chandra Talpade Mohanty.

Weaving personal narrative with political analysis, Community as Rebellion offers a meditation on creating liberatory spaces for students and faculty of color within academia. Much like other women scholars of color, Lorgia García Peña has struggled against the colonizing, racializing, classist, and unequal structures that perpetuate systemic violence within universities.

Angela Y. Davis regards Community as Rebellion as “a life-saving and life-affirming text, it offers us the trenchant analysis and fearless strategy radical scholar-activists have long needed.”
