Remaking the Exceptional Publication Release: Poetry Reading and Stories of Resistance

Thursday, July 14, 5:00–7:30pm

Join us in-person as a community to celebrate the publication of the Remaking the Exceptional: Tea, Torture, and Reparations book. This launch, like the book, weaves together artwork, poetry, legal testimony, research, and experiences of creative resistance against systems of oppression, all the while celebrating the struggle for survival, justice, and reparations by imprisoned people, activists, and artists.

The program will begin promptly at 5:30pm with a reception to follow.

Moderated by Maira Khwaja, the program's speakers include Mansoor Adayfi, Baher Azmy, Dorothy Burge, Anthony Holmes, LaTanya Jenifor-Sublett, Mohamedou Ould Slahi, and Aislinn Pulley.

For those unable to join in-person, the program will be livestreamed via Zoom. All those who register will receive a link to join the virtual discussion.

This program is made possible in part by the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Pozen Center Human Rights Lab, Illinois Humanities through its Envisioning Justice initiative, and DePaul University’s Vincentian Endowment.
