A trio of local and national activists who have studied and documented social struggles from racism to school privatization will speak at the Durham County Library today as part of an international Community and Resistance Tour.

Writers Jordan Flaherty and Victoria Law and Durham-based activist Manju Rajendran will speak at the event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the library's main branch at 300 N. Roxboro St.

Flaherty is a journalist and community organizer from New Orleans, and editor at Left Turn Magazine, who has won praise for his writing on the Jena Six case and coverage of Hurricane Katrina. He is author of "FLOODLINES: Community and Resistance from Katrina to the Jena Six." Read more about the speakers >>
