Consumed. The Need for Collective Change: Colonialism, Climate Change, and Consumerism Book Discussion
Time: 7:00 pm-8:00 pm
In recognition of Black History Month, we invite you to join us in a discussion of Aja Barber’s Consumed: The Need for Collective Change: Colonialism, Climate Change, and Consumerism. We’ll meet in the Great Hall and discuss how Barber exposes the endemic injustices in our consumer industries and the uncomfortable history of the textile industry, one which brokered slavery, racism, and today’s wealth inequality. The first 10 people to register for this program will receive a free copy of the book to keep. This program is in partnership with the Norfolk Church of Christ and the Norfolk Land Trust. Please note this is a discussion-centered program and the author will not be in attendance.
