Join us for an evening with Akira Drake Rodriguez as she discusses her new book Diverging Space for Deviants: The Politics of Atlanta’s Public Housing, which examines the dialectic between black feminist politics and public housing policy in Atlanta from 1936 to 2010. Panelists for the event include Nedra Deadwyler, founder of Civil Bikes, and King Williams from the The Neighborhood Watch Podcast and The Saporta Report. The discussion will be moderated by Stephanie Stokes from WABE.
