Jenn M. Jackson in Conversation with Preston Mitchum

The author of Black Women Taught Us comes to DC on Thurs., Feb. 8th, at 7 p.m.!

Jenn M. Jackson in Conversation with Preston Mitchum
Jenn M. Jackson, Ph.D., has been known to bring historical acuity to some of the most controversial topics in America today. Now, in their first book, Jackson applies their critical analysis to the questions that have long energized their work: Why has Black women’s freedom-fighting been so overlooked throughout history, and what has our society lost because of our refusal to engage with our forestrugglers’ lessons?

For a new generation of movement organizers and co-strugglers, Black Women Taught Us serves as a reminder that Black women were the first ones to teach us how to fight racism, how to name that fight, and how to imagine a more just world for everyone.

Jackson will be in conversation with Preston Mitchum, founder and principal of PDM Consulting and the first openly LGBTQ chair of the Washington Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. In 2021, he was voted DC's Most Committed Activist by the Washington Blade.
