Bakari Sellers with Kamala Harris - "My Vanishing Country" - in conversation with Tiffany Cross

One of the youngest state representatives in South Carolina history, Bakari Sellers brings readers this important book that illuminates the lives of America’s forgotten black working-class men and women. In his poetic personal history, Sellers humanizes the struggles that shape their lives: to gain access to healthcare as rural hospitals disappear; to make ends meet as the factories they have relied on shut down and move overseas; to hold on to precious traditions as their towns erode; to forge a path forward without succumbing to despair.

Sellers will be joined by Kamala Harris, the second African American woman in history to be elected to the U.S. Senate, and the first African American and first woman to serve as Attorney General of the state of California. She is the author of The Truths We Hold.

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. To attend this online event, you must purchase a copy of My Vanishing Country from Politics and Prose. After you make your purchase, you will be automatically registered for the event within 24 hours.

Moderating this event is Tiffany Cross, author of the upcoming book Say It Louder! Black Voters, White Narratives and the Saving of Our Democracy. She is a 2020 Resident Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School's Institute of Politics, an on-air political analyst, and a longtime cable news veteran.
