Community Book Center hosts Activist Roundtable and Book Launch

The Community Book Center will host a roundtable of experienced activists and organizers from 4 – 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 10, at their storefront (2523 Bayou Road). The event will serve as a release party for Jordan Flaherty’s new book, No More Heroes: Grassroots Challenges to the Savior Mentality.

Flaherty will discuss organizing against police violence, New Orleans’ evolving school system, and the savior mentality alongside Alfred Marshall, Michael Quess? Moore, Jonshell Johnson, and Derek Roguski. Moore will also give a spoken-word performance, and there will be a Q&A with the activists. Copies of Flaherty’s book will be sold and signed.
