Author Talk and Book Signing featuring Etan Thomas | Athletes and Activism
April 6, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
MahoganyBooks is proud to present activist, author and former NBA standout, Etan Thomas for a timely discussion about political engagement and social activism. In his new book, Etan Thomas interviewed over fifty athletes, executives, media figures, and more for their opinions on race in America and the constant struggle for justice.
Most people will remember Etan Thomas as a NBA power forward, spending seven of his nine NBA seasons playing for the Washington Wizards. However, during that time Thomas built a reputation for himself as a socially conscious activist and poet, including frequently speaking out against the Iraq War and the federal government’s response to Hurricane Katrina.
An author of four books, Thomas’ newest book, We Matter: Athletes and Activism, “is a collection of interviews and essays that explore the intersection of sports and politics. This book will be an inspiration for many different people: sports junkies; young readers who need words of encouragement from their favorite athletes; parents seeking positive messages for their children; activists who want to hear athletes using their voices to address social justice; and schools that need motivational material for their students.”
We encourage you to join us on April 6th from 7:00PM to 8:30PM at MahoganyBooks for an exciting and engaging conversation with Etan Thomas as he discusses and autographs his new book.
This event is FREE and open to the public with RSVP.
