The 2018 Buffalo Humanities Festival will foster a series of community conversations on revolutions with a special emphasis on past, present and future movements effecting social, political and cultural change. From the events of 1776 and 1968, through the impact of the tech revolution and big data, to #metoo and Black Lives Matter in 2018, join us as we examine revolution? versus REVOLUTION!
We are very excited to host New York Times bestselling author Angie Thomas as the spotlight speaker for the Buffalo Humanities Festival: Revolutions. Angie Thomas is the author of the instant #1 New York Times bestseller The Hate U Give: widely known as the Black Lives Matter–inspired YA novel. Called “a stunning, brilliant, gut-wrenching novel that will be remembered as a classic of our time” (The New York Times), it has already been adapted as a major feature film that will be released on October 19, 2018. In talks, Thomas gives context and background to the culture, politics, and movement behind the book.
