Book signing with author Juliana "Jewels" Smith
In honor of Women's History Month, the African American Museum & Library at Oakland welcomes educator, writer, and organizer Juliana "Jewels" Smith for a book signing and meet and greet with the author. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Ms. Smith's creative work is driven by her experience as a grassroots organizer and educator. In 2011, while teaching at community colleges she wrote and created (H)afrocentric: the Comic to encourage dialogue on some of the most pressing issues of the day. Smith calls (H)afrocentric a feminist version of The Boondocks and sees the comic as liberatory science fiction.
Please join us for a book signing and meet and greet with the author on Saturday March 26, 2016 from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
