The Echoing Ida Collection

7:30 PM – 8:00 PM


Charis Books and More / Charis Circle in collaboration with the Auburn Avenue Research Library celebrates The Echoing Ida Collection with co-editor Dr. Cynthia Greenlee and Atlanta contributors and activists: Bianca Campbell, Quita Tinsley Peterson, and Samantha Daley, moderated by local organizer Tamika Middleton.

Rooted in reproductive justice, Echoing Ida harnesses the power of media for social justice--amplifying the struggles and successes of contemporary freedom movements in the US. Founded in 2012, Echoing Ida is a writing collective of Black women and non-binary writers who--like their fore-mother Ida B. Wells-Barnett--believe the "way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them." Their community reporting spans a wide variety of topics: reproductive justice and abortion politics; new and necessary definitions of family; trans visibility; stigma against Black motherhood; Black mental health; and more.

This anthology collects the best of Echoing Ida for the first time and features a foreword by Michelle Duster, activist, and great-granddaughter of Ida B. Wells-Barnett. Imagining a gender-expansive and liberated future, these essays affirm the powerful combination of #BlackGirlMagic and the hard, unceasing labor of Black people to re-imagine the world in which we live.
