Join us for a powerful evening of dialogue between Dr. Tara Betts, the Literary Editor of New City, and author Cyntoia Brown-Long as they discuss her new book, Free Cyntoia: My Search for Redemption in the American Prison System. They will also reflect on the impact of trafficking in Black communities in recognition of January as Human Trafficking Awareness Month.
We will also hear from Chicago-based survivor leader and advocate, Brenda Stewart, who will open the evening with her own testimony of survival and the work she does to advocate for and support other survivors of exploitation and violence. There will be a Q+A with the audience towards the end of the program.
