Because We’ve Read is a global radical reading club with over 30 chapters world wide. The goals of this international book club founded by Hoda Katebi are:

1. To raise our collective awareness and understanding of politics, race, gender, religion, culture, history, colonialism, class etc, in ways that disrupt normative narratives 

2. To uplift and celebrate stories of those whose identities are marginalized and whose voices are traditionally systematically silenced

3. To make us all think differently about ourselves and the world, from a viewpoint that will not be taught in your classes; some of us will realize we are in chains and others that they are holding them.

For our February meeting we will discuss the following two books:

Policing the Planet by Jordan T. Camp and Christina Heatherton. A free pdf of the book is available at: http://www.joojooazad.com/2018/10/becauseweveread-prisons-police-aboliti...

Africa Uprising: Popular Protest and Political Change by Adam Branch and Zachariah Mampilly A free pdf of the relevant chapters is available at: http://www.joojooazad.com/2018/12/becauseweveread-emergency-read-on-suda...

It is not necessary to have read both books. We also welcome people who have any knowledge or experience about either topics.

Please email bwr.leeds@gmail.com if you have any questions.
