“We Are Meant to Rise: Voices for Justice from Minneapolis to the World” Reading and Panel Discussion

April 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free

Minneapolis College School of Liberal Arts and Cultures and Student Life invites you to attend a virtual reading and panel discussion featuring editors and writers from the book “We Are Meant to Rise: Voices for Justice from Minneapolis to the World” on Thursday, April 14, 2022 from noon to 1:30 p.m. It is free and open to the public.

The event will highlight this significant collection featuring Indigenous writers and writers of color who bear witness to one of the most unsettling years in the history of the United States. Essays and poems vividly reflect and comment on the traumas we endured in 2020, beginning with the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, deepened by the blatant murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers and the uprisings that immersed our city into the epicenter of passionate, worldwide demands for justice.
