Between the Lines: The Courage To Hope by Shirley Sherrod with Esther Armah
The Schomburg Center, in partnership with Atria Books, Emotional Justice Unplugged, WBAI, and BET, presents Shirley Sherrod, author of The Courage To Hope: How I Stood Up to the Politics of Fear. Sherrod became a household name in 2010 when the National Media labeled her a reverse racist. She was accused of discriminating against white farmers; condemned by the NAACP, the Tea Party, the Obama administration, CNN, Fox, and a whole host of news outlets--and ultimately forced to resign. Join Sherrod for a provocative and powerful conversation with NYC Radio host, playwright, and award winning international journalist Esther Armah.
