Three authors summon blades of courage by confronting a rapist in an effort to examine how it’s possible for a good person to do a horrific thing; by grappling with and dismantling a form of self-hatred, and the dredge of colorism that stems from the oppression of white supremacy; by a walk back through a vulnerable past in the wake of violence, and the grind through the forces that create a “habit of fear”. Join Jeannie Vanasco, Things We Didn’t Talk About When I Was a Girl; Petula Caesar, She’s Such a Bright Girl: An American Story; and Karen Stefano, What the Body Remembers, in a riveting and frank conversation about taking control, the what ifs and getting to grace with moderator Sharea Harris.
