Black History Month Author Events At Revolution Books
Saturday, February 20, 2:00 pm - Black Theaters in Chicago
Gerald R. Butters joins us with his new book,From Sweetback to Super Fly: Race and Film Audiences in Chicago's Loop. In it, he exposes how segregation and racism in the Chicago Loop shaped the response to the rise of Black themed theaters in the 1970s. Their subsequent fall was not the product of the "free market." On the contrary, Butters documents a concerted effort by the business establishment and the first Daley administration to shut down every last one of these theaters.
Saturday, February 27, 2:00 pm - To be Gay and Black
Jarrett Neal will present his new collection of essays, What Color Is Your Hoodie? These essays range widely: growing up Black and gay far from gay enclaves, the status of Black gay men in the new millennium, classism among Black gay men, racism within the gay community, representations of the Black male body within gay pornography, and patriarchal threats to the survival of both Black men and gay men.
