Damon Young: What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Blacker


Northwest African American Museum Atlantic
Fri April 12, 7 pm


  Save Event

On, website co-founder Damon Young offers witty, passionate, and beautifully constructed takes on culture and the news. That same élan is expected to animate this memoir about the "extreme sport" of being black in America. It's also a self-examination of the constant anxieties and complexities born of the pressures of white supremacy and heteronormativity, and the uncertainties of might-have-beens. Local activist and writer Ijeoma Oluo will engage Young in conversation.
