This summer, the entire School of Social Policy & Practice community has been invited to engage in a collective experience focused around the book “Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements.”

The communal endeavor is tied to One Book, One SP2, a new initiative intended to foster a stronger sense of unity and reinforce antiracism efforts and cultural humility throughout the school.

“Unapologetic,” authored by American activist Charlene A. Carruthers, is described as a forward-thinking manual that outlines how social justice movements can become sharper and more effective through principled struggle, healing justice, and leadership development. Published in 2018, the book provides a framework for activists committed to dismantling racism, prejudice, ableism, homophobia, and the patriarchy. The publication encourages readers to reexamine history, effectively organize, and see themselves as visionaries and leaders.
