December 8: BILL FLETCHER, JR’S BOOK PARTY & DISCUSSION

Author and Activist Bill Fletcher, Jr.Join award-winning journalist and lifelong social justice advocate Bill Fletcher, Jr. (NWU DC Chapter member) for the launch of his first work of fiction: The Man Who Fell From the Sky, a crime novel. Bill will discuss his novel’s exploration of racism and inequality through the eyes of a young journalist of Cape Verdean descent who investigates a murder in a small Cape Cod community in 1970 while covering the anti-Viet Nam War protests and the Black Panthers. His interviews of people of color, African-American and Cape Verdean, bring him a new understanding of the African diaspora and the challenges of surviving in America.

Set within a Cape Verdean American community undergoing a transformation of its own consciousness, Fletcher’s crime novel dives deep into two timely questions: Is revenge ever a moral form of justice, and when does silence become complicity as criminal acts are committed before your own eyes? Bill will also discuss the unique ways in which a work of fiction can explore and reveal important truths about the human condition, as well as touch the heart and stir a people to take action.
