If you're looking for a powerful and thought-provoking Black History Month gathering, Black Resistance in the Time of Trump, presented by Angels Flight Literary West, should provide one you'll never forget. Black L.A.-based writers, including Shonda Buchanan, Rachel Harper, Dana Johnson, Lia Langworthy, Michelle Maltais, Jonathan Tipton Meyers, Chris Terry and Rebecca Walker, read from their written works, sharing their experiences and exploring thoughts about the hateful actions and racist rhetoric of the current administration. Black History Month is about celebrating the achievements of African-Africans but, as AFLW seeks to remind us, right now fighting injustice and encouraging resistance need to be part of the conversation (both printed and spoken) as well. A reception and signings will follow the reading.
