BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE

Calling ALL Community Leaders and Urban Professionals:

Join us for our annual BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE, June 29th – Sept 10th 2019!

Our goal is simply to support disadvantaged students and school with undersized budgets within the Alexandria City Public School System. As you know, our public schools have already experienced budget cuts and families with multiples children are struggling to provide school supplies for their children. Let us come together and help collect back to school resources for families and schools in need.

As such, we all know that the cost of school supplies have risen over the years and the list of needed school supplies have grown longer and pricier. Parents spend large sums of money on school supplies that does not even include clothes, shoes, backpack, lunch box, and more. These families deserve our support, especially those with multiple students in the home, as well as schools in need.

Please bring your school supplies to our bookstore or make a generous donation to purchase much needed school supplies for students within the Alexandria City Public School System.

“Why The Race Battle Is So Hard To Win,” by Dr. Julian S. With

Kate Waller Barrett Branch Library
7 17 Queen Street
Alexandria, Virginia 22314

Dr. Julian With  critiques’ are sometimes razor-sharp, but always sprout from professional, nuanced analyzes, illustrated by striking examples. The formulations, the expressiveness, the daring, the knowledge, and the thorough refutation of assumptions and false certainties make this book a fascinating polemic. The reader will recognize a lot, learn a lot, sometimes smile, nod approvingly, and occasionally frown or shake his/her head. In any case, the blood will flow faster when reading, and that is precisely what Julian With wants. He has no time for indifference, passivity, indiscriminately accepting everything. Those who remember the criticism that broke out in the US after Bill Cosby’s Pound Cake Speech know that it is hazardous to criticize your own group if you are a Black critic. Apart from the risk of rejection, there is a chance you will be placed on the same level as the Black authors who only write negatively about Blacks to please the white readers. The writer knows that risk better than anyone else, but does not stop writing what he considers essential for the victory of a battle that threatens to last forever, because so often the wrong mode of struggle has been chosen. As he also fiercely attacks the racism of white people, he estimates the probability of being misjudged very small. It is incomprehensible that African Americans still have to fight until 2017 to combat voting suppression while the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965. With this book, the writer offers a partial solution to a persistent problem that still causes countless victims among the Black population, not only in the U.S. but also, in Europe and the Caribbean.

What Truth Sounds Like

 

Harry Belafonte says: “Dyson has finally written the book I always wanted to read. I had the privilege of attending the meeting he has insightfully written about, and it’s as if he were a fly on the wall…a tour de force…a poetically written work that calls on all of us to get back in that room and to resolve the racial crises we confronted more than fifty years ago.”

What Truth Sounds Like: Robert F. Kennedy, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America

Michael Eric Dyson

IN STORES JUNE 5, 2018

Joy-Ann Reid says: A work of searing prose and seminal brilliance… Dyson takes that once in a lifetime conversation between black excellence and pain and the white heroic narrative, and drives it right into the heart of our current politics and culture, leaving the reader reeling and reckoning.”

Robin D. G. Kelley says:“Dyson masterfully refracts our present racial conflagration through a subtle reading of one of the most consequential meetings about race to ever take place. In so doing, he reminds us that Black artists and intellectuals bear an awesome responsibility to speak truth to power.”

President Barack Obama says: “Everybody who speaks after Michael Eric Dyson pales in comparison.”
