Join Nation Books author Darnell Moore at the Brooklyn Historical Society on Thursday, August 2nd to discuss his new book, No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America.
From a leading organizer with the Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ movements comes a brave, beautifully wrought memoir of radical black love. When Darnell L. Moore was fourteen years old, three boys from his Camden, NJ neighborhood tried to set him on fire. Darnell was tall and awkward and constantly bullied by those who saw him as other. That afternoon, the boys doused him with gasoline and tried lighting a match—but it was too windy. It was not the last time he would face death.
No Ashes In The Fire is a story of beauty and hope, giving voice to the rich, varied experiences of all those who survive on the edges of the margins. As he reckons with what it means to be free, Darnell charts a glorious path toward liberation.
