This talk—from the most radical revolutionary on the planet—makes the case for massive, sustained nonviolent outpourings to begin on Nov. 4. It traces the roots of the regime—the deeper and more immediate causes of its rise to power. Released Oct. 15.

Sikivu Hutchinson discusses Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics and the Value Wars 5-27-11 at 7 pm

Don't miss Sikivu Hutchinson discussing her unique book  Moral Combat: Black Atheists, Gender Politics and the Value Wars

"In the book I examine the implications of black Christian religiosity, skepticism, humanism, and atheism from an African American feminist perspective, taking on Christian fundamentalist fascism and the hijacking of public morality....despite longstanding traditions of secular humanism, skepticism, and Freethought espoused by such thinkers as Frederick Douglass, Zora Neale Hurston, Nella Larsen and Richard Wright, atheism remains a taboo belief system in black communities."

Dr. Hutchinson will appear at Revolution Books in Berkeley on Friday, May 27 at 7 pm.

Sikivu Hutchinson is the author of Imagining Transit: Race, Gender, and Transportation Politics in Los Angeles and has published fiction, essays and critical theory in Social Text, California English, Black Agenda Report and American Atheist Magazine. She is a Senior Fellow with the Institute for Humanist Studies.

She has recently defended Planned Parenthood from the "right-wing lynch mob" in an article Planned Parenthood and the Rape of American Women.
