The book excerpts will be read by Stephen Summers – Vietnam veteran, contemporary witness of the Black Power movement in the U.S. and anti-war activist.
The event is in English, with German translation. Because of the Corona situation, there will be only a limited number of participants, but there will be an internet livestream. For more info, see http://schwarzerisse.de/ & http://mumia-hoerbuch.de
