Our Inescapable Responsibility: A Three-Day Reading Pop-up

April 24-26 | Klarman Atrium

Hosted by Asian Pacific Americans for Action (APAA)

Facebook event


APAA is a group of students who have been involved in the deep study of past revolutionary thinkers for the past year. We have been discussing the life and thinking of James Baldwin, WEB Du Bois, Grace Lee Boggs, and other thinkers whose revolutionary lives and ideas serve as models for future generations to follow. In an increasingly confusing world, we have been reading these thinkers to develop our ideas and achieve clarity in order to act on them. To share our ideas and honor these thinkers, we are organizing a 3-day pop-up where we will be reading aloud from the works of Baldwin, Du Bois and Grace Lee Boggs. Each day will focus on a specific theme — Education, History/Reality, and Responsibility — with corresponding readings for each theme. These themes follow the trajectory of certain essential questions which we feel the American education system and contemporary academia have failed to address:


What is the purpose of education?

What is the nature of the reality in which we live?

How did society come to be this way?

And given the state of the world today, what is our responsibility to humanity?


If you are interested in reading/talking about any of these questions (or if they provoke you to ask questions of your own), come to Klarman Atrium on the following dates/times:


Day 1 | Education | Tues. April 24, 4:30-6:00pm

"There are two sides to every question but only one side is right." - Grace Lee Boggs, Education: The Great Obsession


Day 2 | History/Reality | Wed. April 25, 4:30-6:00pm

"Don't you understand that the past is the present; that without what was, nothing is?" - WEB Du Bois, The World and Africa


Day 3 | Responsibility | Thurs. April 26, 5:30-7:00pm

"What I am demanding of other people is what I am demanding of myself." - James Baldwin, A Rap on Race


This event is free and open to the public. The only ticket you'll need is an open mind and passion for learning!
