Join us on Monday, February 19, 7:00-8:00pm PT at Annie Bloom’s Books in Portland, OR.

Annie Bloom’s Books welcomes authors Roxy Manning & Sarah Peyton for readings and discussions centered on their two new books, How to Have Antiracist Conversations: Embracing Our Full Humanity to Challenge White Supremacy and The Antiracist Heart: A Self-Compassion and Activism Handbook.

Explore a groundbreaking approach to fighting racism and white supremacy culture through compassionate yet fierce dialogue inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King’s Beloved Community. Roxy and Sarah provide practical tools and frameworks that foster connection and courage, reimagining antiracist conversations.

About How to Have Antiracist Conversations:

Utilizing Dr. Martin Luther King’s Beloved Community framework, activists will be empowered to create change and equity through fierce yet compassionate dialogue against racism and systematic white supremacy. Can a person be both fierce and compassionate at once? Directly challenge racist speech or actions without seeking to humiliate the other person? Interrupt hateful or habitual forms of discrimination in new ways that foster deeper change? Dr. Roxy Manning believes it’s possible—and you can learn how.

About The Antiracist Heart:

The Antiracist Heart delivers a unique path to antiracist activism and introspection by applying neuroscience exercises, questionnaires, and journaling prompts based on the book How to Have Antiracist Conversations. In each chapter, Manning, a clinical psychologist and antiracist activist, and Peyton, a neuroscience expert and educator, both trainers in Nonviolent Communication, unpack key concepts like bias and trauma using brain science alongside practices for self-connection and dialogue.

Roxy Manning is a clinical psychologist and certified Center for Nonviolent Communication (CNVC) trainer. Since 2004 she has operated a private consulting business and regularly holds international workshops and intensives centered around nonviolent communication and social change issues. She has served as executive director of Bay Area Nonviolent Communication and focuses her outside efforts on working with the homeless population of San Francisco.
