Liberation Literature! An Evening With Ahjamu Umi And Michelle Matisons says
The Marilyn Buck Abolitionist Collective is committed to developing support for a world free from oppression from capitalism and imperialism. We recognize that culture is a key component in rising people into the revolutionary consciousness necessary to effect the positive change we are working for. It's in that spirit that we proudly sponsor this important event entitled "Liberation Literature!"

On February 6, 2016, at "In Other Words" bookstore in Portland, Oregon (14 N.E. Killingsworth St. 6:30pm to 8:30pm), Oregon based author Ahjamu Umi and Florida based author Michelle Matisons will discuss "Liberation Literature - The role of literary fiction in inspiring people to stand up and fight against capitalism and it's appendages - white supremacy and patriarchy." Ahjamu's latest novel "The Courage Equation" and Michelle's book "Left to our Own Devices" each confront the challenges of women organizing against and destroying white supremacy while also confronting the challenges of patriarchy within the radical movement circles.

Then she taught in California public universities for six years before leaving for the beaches and long leaf pine forests of Bay County, Florida.
