Practicing what we preach, Fourmation has partnered with Sister’s Uptown Bookstore to place an order of “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah. Both Fourmation members and Fourmation Allies alike will receive a copy of Noah’s book to drive the content during our next Radical Book-club discussion, when we’ll be having a frank conversation about the racial dynamics of South Africa’s apartheid and its parallels to the U.S.
