Ijeoma Oluo is a writer, speaker, and internet yeller. Oluo’s latest book, Be A Revolution: How Everyday People Are Fighting Oppression and Changing the World—and How You Can Too, offers an eye opening, accessible guide to anti-racist activism. Showcasing the leaders who work every day to create systemic change in America, Oluo gives a voice to specific community leaders, providing space for them to share their stories and offer honest wisdom.

Our executive director, Nancy A. Parker, will be one of the community leaders in conversation with Oluo at this event!

Her work has been featured in the Guardian, the New York Times, and the Washington Post, among many other publications. She was named to the 2021 Time 100 Next list and has twice been named to the Root 100. She received the 2018 Feminist Humanist Award and the 2020 Harvard Humanist of the Year Award from the American Humanist Association. She lives in Seattle, Washington. For more on Ijeoma go to:
