KK Ottesen - Activist: Portraits of Courage — in conversation with Jasilyn Charger

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 14, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Ottesen, whose work has appeared in The Washington Post for more than a decade, is a writer and photographer who pairs images with interviews to break down barriers and celebrate common ground. Her first book, Great Americans, explored what it means to be American through a series of portraits of people who bear the names of famous figures. Her new collection celebrating activism features forty change-makers of diverse ages, backgrounds, and perspectives—Bernie Sanders, Angela Davis, Bill McKibben, Alicia Garza—discussing what motivates people to take up a cause and what sustains them during the struggle. Spotlighting issues including voting and reproductive rights, the environment, and economic justice, Ottesen shows, while her subjects tell, what it means to live a life of passion and purpose.

Ottesen will be in conversation with Jasilyn Charger, indigenous environmental protector and activist from the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe.
