Join Charis Books and More for a conversation with Darnell Moore about black queer liberation, feminism, and freedom as he shares stories from his book “No Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black & Free in America.” When Moore was 14, three boys from his neighborhood tried to set him on fire. They cornered him while he was walking home from school, harassed him because they thought he was gay, and poured a jug of gasoline on him. He escaped, but barely. Three decades later, Moore is an award-winning writer, a leading Black Lives Matter activist, and an advocate for justice and liberation. In his book, he shares the journey taken by that scared, bullied teenager who not only survived but found his calling.

Every year, the tribe’s young men are brought to the mountains of the Eastern Cape to participate in an ancient coming-of-age ritual. Xolani, a quiet and sensitive factory worker (played by openly gay musician Nakhane Touré), is assigned to guide Kwanda, a city boy from Johannesburg sent by his father to be toughened up, through this rite of passage into manhood.
