From Joe’s Pub:
We’re living in a world divided. Race and ethnicity, caste and color, gender and sexuality, class and education, religion and political party have all become labels that reduce our differences to simplistic categories in which “we” are vehemently against “them.” But Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis’s own experience—of being the first female and first Black senior minister in her church’s history, of being in an interracial marriage, and of making peace with childhood abuse—illustrates that our human capacity for empathy and forgiveness is the key to reversing these ugly trends. Join us for an evening with Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis and artists, including Tituss Burgess, BETTY, John Fugelsang, and Genesis Be, as we discover a new path forward and celebrate the launch of Dr. Lewis’s new book, FIERCE LOVE: A Bold Path to Ferocious Courage and Rule-Breaking Kindness That Can Heal the World, hailed by New York Times bestselling author & CNN political contributor Van Jones, as “a welcome moral North Star for readers everywhere.
