  • Book Club: Mistaken Identity

    April 24, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
    Quill Books & Beverage, 1 Westbrook Common #5, Westbrook, ME 04092, USA

    Join the Southern Maine DSA for our monthly book club in discussing "Mistaken Identity" by Asad Haider!

    Whether class or race is the more important factor in modern politics is a question right at the heart of recent history’s most contentious debates. To escape this deadlock, Asad Haider turns to the rich legacies of the black freedom struggle. Drawing on the words and deeds of black revolutionary theorists, he argues that identity politics is not synonymous with anti-racism, but instead amounts to the neutralization of its movements. It marks a retreat from the crucial passage of identity to solidarity, and from individual recognition to the collective struggle against an oppressive social structure.

    We have physical copies to borrow in our library!

    You can also buy a personal copy here:

    Quil Books and Beverage has plenty of food, coffee, alcoholic beverages, and more, and are happy to host a book club's worth of socialists!
