A Community Discussion and Book Signing with Paul Ortiz

Event-Post-Featured-Image9.png

An intersectional history of the shared struggle for African American and Latinx civil rights

MahoganyBooks & Duende District is excited to announce our April book club selection, An African American and Latinx History of the United States by Paul Ortiz. On April 24, 2018, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM MBBxDD will host a community book discussion with author and educator Dr. Paul Ortiz at MahoganyBooks.

We encourage students, educators, history buffs, and activists alike to join us for an interactive community read & discussion about the various ways Latinx and African American civil rights activists, labor organizers, and intellectuals have worked to resist the widely taught formulations like “manifest destiny” and “Jacksonian democracy.” Dr. Ortiz will also share from his book a way forward in the continued struggle for people of the diaspora for universal civil rights against today’s “America First” leaning. 

There are several ways to participate:

  1. General Admission: Join us at the store for the live book discussion with Dr. Ortiz. Book club participants must first register to reserve your seat for the live discussion.
  2. Live Participant: Receive access to both the live discussion with Dr. Ortiz as well as the online conversation leading up to the event. Stop by MahoganyBooks to register and take home your book the same day or register online and pick up your book at the store at your convenience.
  3. Online Participant: Register online to join the online discussion, view the live streamed event, and receive an autographed copy of the book.

Note: Books purchased from outside vendors are prohibited and will not be autographed.
