Re-Imagining Anti-Oppression

Join us for a transformative, interactive book talk and Q&A with Dr. Manning, exploring antiracism as a model for anti-oppression dialogues. Inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King’s vision of the Beloved Community, The Authentic Dialogue framework offers a path to combating white supremacy culture and other forms of oppression. Learn how to apply this approach in conversations around gender, age, sexuality, size, religion, class and more with practical tools and strategies. Discover how to foster connection and courage through compassionate, yet fierce, dialogues.

This event is free. Donations gladly accepted to support Dr. Manning’s work.

Purchase books online or in person at Volume One Bookstore, or purchase at the event.


This event will be hosted in-person at Duncan United Church. For any questions related to the event, please contact Ranji at
