(H)afrocentric Vol. 4: Book Signing and Chill with Author, Jewels Smith


(H)afrocentric stars a posse of disgruntled undergrads of color as they navigate their way through Ronald Reagan University. Follow the self proclaimed radical Black feminist, Naima Pepper (who has a White mama), as she deals with the contradictions of her own life in various ways—lashing out in Tourette Syndrome-like rants about gentrification, white supremacy, and apathy. Both she and her brother, Miles Pepper, grew up in a mostly White and Asian neighborhood. Miles Pepper reflects a popular culture aesthetic and mindset. As they navigate through the world with their best friends, Renee Aanjay Brown and El Ramirez, their identities and neighborhood start to change in front of their eyes. Join us at Betti Ono for a book signing and Q&A session with (H)afrocentric author, Juliana “Jewels” Smith, as facilitated by Melorra Green on Friday, March 25th from 7-9pm.
