African Americans Against the Bomb
August 7 @ 6:00 pm EDT
You are invited to a presentation and conversation with Vincent Intondi, author of African Americans Against the Bomb: Nuclear Weapons, Colonialism, and the Black Freedom Movement. The book was amongst the first to connect the history of the anti-nuclear movement with the fight for racial equality. The event will serve to memorialize the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings to mark 78 years since the explosion. Attendees are encouraged to join in person but may also join via zoom. The library will also be hosting an exhibit in August and September 2023 of posters which were gifts from Nikon Hidankyo, the Japan Confederation of A- and H-Bomb Sufferors Organizations to Joseph Gerson.
