Austin African American Book Festival 2022
The 16th annual Austin African American Book Festival brought book discussions and conversations from authors and comments and questions from book lovers together on Saturday, June 25, 2022, at the George Washington Carver Museum and Library.
This year’s featured author is Dr. Julianne Malveaux. She discussed her book “Surviving and Thriving: 365 Facts in Black Economic History,” which will be reissued later this year.
Dr. Mark Cunningham led an interactive audience discussion on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s book “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” The book provides insights into the Civil Rights leader’s concerns and aspirations for America's future. His words signify a deep understanding of America’s societal trajectory and seem unnervingly prescient today.
Other authors were in the lobby of the George Washington Carver Museum and Library discussing and signing their books for book fans. These authors included Dr. Moe Anderson, Don Tate, Van Garrett, Kelly Fair, kYmberly Keeton and a new author showcase.
The Austin African American Book Festival promotes creativity, activism, and positive change.
