Join us FRIDAY @7:30 at Charis Bookstore, the oldest and largest feminist bookstore in the South, as we celebrate the release of Georgia State University professor Layli Phillips Maparyan’s newest book,” The Womanist Idea”!!!
Following on the heels of The Womanist Reader, The Womanist Idea offers a comprehensive, systematic analysis of womanism, including a detailed discussion of the womanist worldview (cosmology, ontology, epistemology, logic, axiology, and methodology) and its implications for activism.From a womanist perspective, social and ecological change is necessarily undergirded by spirituality as distinct from religion per se which invokes a metaphysically informed approach to activism.
Linda Costa, the cover artist for the book, will also be with us to talk about her work. This event is co-sponsored by Charis Circle’s Founding the Future of Feminisms Program. The suggested donation is $5, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
***Event begins at 7:30 and Ends at 9:00
