“Works of Resistance, Resilience” is comprised of poetry, fiction, nonfiction and visual art by 83 writers and artists. The issue has five theme-related sections that explore what it means to live in America at this time of profound reckoning? What does resistance look like? Can resistance contain love, power and empathy? In this age of collective anxiety, the writers and artists from around the world attempt to answer what it means to live and survive during the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. The Works of Resistance, Resilience reading series will rekindle our desire to learn and thrive and to discover what is needed to change our relationship to the earth and to each other.

We invite you to come to these readings/artist talks/sharings, and catch glimpses of resistance and resilience in hard times. 75 minutes, including time for Q+A.

The Readings Series and the “Works of Resistance, Resilience” issue of About Place Journal are edited and organized by Jacqueline Johnson, with assistant editors Ifeona H. Fulani and Vida James.
