Ain't no party like a Scalawag party 'cause a Scalawag party don't miss!
It's been a long year of long days, but y'all we're almost through it. And that deserves some celebrating. Come hang with the Scalawag fam at our annual jubilee for a virtual evening of liberatory literature and communal conversations. As always, this event is free for Scalawag members. Join now to skip the ticket fees and get registration info sent straight to you, or pay a $10 cover to attend as a non-member.
As we kick it with our kinfolk, we'll turn to the year's best writing to help us reimagine our Southern futures. Here's what we've got on deck:
➤ A poetry reading by Aurielle Marie from their debut collection Gumbo Ya Ya.
➤ Excerpts from an exclusive Scalawag interview with Virginian author Jocelyn Nicole Johnson on her debut My Monticello.
➤ Updates from the Scalawag team on our best reporting from the year
➤ A cocktail and kiki with Scalawag Race & Place Editor Ko Bragg and Author Da'Shaun Harrison.
