Book Club: Undrowned by Alexis Pauline Gumbs

May 19 at 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Join us for a discussion of the book Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals by Alexis Pauline Gumbs.

Undrowned is a book-length meditation for the entire human species, based on the subversive and transformative lessons of marine mammals. Alexis Pauline Gumbs has spent hundreds of hours watching our aquatic cousins. She has found them to be queer, fierce, protective of each other, complex, shaped by conflict, and struggling to survive the extractive and militarized conditions humans have imposed on the ocean. Employing a brilliant mix of poetic sensibility, naturalist observation, and Black feminist insights, she translates their submerged wisdom to reveal what they might teach us. The result is a powerful work of creative nonfiction that produces not a specific agenda but an unfolding space for wonder and questioning.

Undrowned is available for purchase at
