In Solidarity, We Read On!

We stand with our Black communities nationally and globally who are actively dismantling and resisting white supremacy, police brutality, and racial violence. MoAD is accountable to our values and mission to be a space for learning, critical dialogue, and a platform for Black voices. We find opportunities to learn, heal, and continue our resistance on the page. Read on with us.
