PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Join Blair Imani for a discussion and signing of her new book "Modern HERstory: Stories of Women and Nonbinary People Rewriting History". Blair Imani will be at Vroman's Bookstore located at 695 E. Colorado Boulevard Pasadena, CA 91101 on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at 7:00pm.
An inspiring and radical celebration of 70 women, girls, and gender nonbinary people who have changed—and are still changing—the world, from the Civil Rights Movement and Stonewall riots through today.
Inspiring a radical and inclusive approach to history, "Modern HERstory" profiles and salutes 70 contemporary champions of progressive social change. Despite making huge contributions to movements of the last century and today, all of these trailblazers come from backgrounds and communities that are traditionally overlooked and under-celebrated: not just women, but people of color, queer people, trans people, Muslims, and young people. Authored by rising star activist Blair Imani, "Modern HERstory" tells the important stories of these leaders and their movements in an easy-to-follow format appropriate for all ages, granting them the visibility and acknowledgment they deserve, and educating readers about the people changing the world right here and right now—and inspiring them to do the same.
