RedBone Press is celebrating the release of Spirited: Affirming the Soul and Black Gay/Lesbian Identity ( $16.95 ) with a reading/signing by co-editors G. Winston James and Lisa C. Moore as well as contributors C.C. Carter and Anthony Hardaway. The event, co-sponsored by Affinity Community Services, will take place Oct. 14, 6-8 p.m., at Affinity Community Services, 5650 S. Woodlawn ( garden level ) . 773-324-0377.
In Spirited, more than 40 writers address the question of how same-gender-loving Black people affirm themselves sexually and spiritually. These narratives are seen as holy texts proclaiming the divinity of their lives, the righteousness of their love and the sanctity of their being.
