Leanne Betasamosake Simpson Launches Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies

We were delighted to host Leanne Betasamosake Simpson and Catherine Hernandez in conversation for the launch of Noopiming: The Cure for White Ladies this evening, to our largest live audience yet. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and contributed to such a great discussion!

We opened with an a cappella reading of the beginning of the book - for the musically inclined, check out the performance here. What followed was talk of the process and intent of the work, artistic layering and collaboration, and the experience of the racialized author, for starters.
