Do the Work: W. Kamau Bell & Kate Schatz
City Arts & Lectures
275 Hayes StreetSan FranciscoCA 94102
As a cherished San Francisco tradition, the City Arts & Lectures series has earned a sterling reputation for pairing together fascinating figures for unique, engaging chats. On Saturday, September 24, the organization’s hot streak continues with an evening featuring Emmy-Award-winning comedian W. Kamau Bell and New York Times bestselling author Kate Schatz. While Bell is known as the director and producer of the riveting 2022 Showtime documentary We Need to Talk About Cosby and the host of the CNN docu-series United Shades of America with W. Kamau Bell, Schatz is the mind behind the wildly popular “Rad Women” book series. For their City Arts date, the topic is a new book co-authored by the pair, published on July 19: Do the Work! An Antiracist Activity Book. Together, Bell and Schatz will discuss their new title, which angles itself as an answer to any American eager to know what they can do to dismantle white supremacy. Billed as a “revolutionary antiracism workbook,” it seeks to provide readers with “a hands-on understanding of systemic racism, white privilege, and Black disenfranchisement—and what to do about it all.” Order a copy today and get the full backstory when Bell and Schatz sit down at the Sydney Goldstein Theater on Saturday night for a conversation moderated by Anna Sale.
