Book Discussion, Nora Barrows-Friedman: "In Our Power" (USM, Portland ME)

  • Albert Brenner Glickman Library, USM Portland 314 Forest Ave Portland, ME, 04101 United States (map)

In 2013 and early 2014, journalist Nora Barrows-Friedman crisscrossed the United States interviewing the young activists who form the core of this movement, and their voices ring out strongly from every page of her new book. In Our Power reveals the rich political legacy these students are building. This new student movement in support of Palestinian rights faces many challenges from on and off-campus opponents. But the strength and intelligence of the voices revealed in the pages of In Our Power show us that truth, justice, and “people power” are capable of withstanding such attacks and continuing forward to victory.  Facebook Event Page
