Please join us in welcoming Myisha Cherry, assistant professor of philosophy at UC Riverside and local author of UnMuted: Conversations on Prejudice, Oppression, and Social Justice (out March 8th).
Based on Cherry's popular podcast UnMute, which hosts a diverse group of philosophers and explores their cutting-edge work through casual conversation, UnMuted collects 31 of Cherry's lively and timely interviews, offering an accessible resource through which to encounter some of philosophy's most socially and politically engaged, public-facing work. Like the podcast that inspired it, the book welcomes in those new to certain philosophical questions, those captivated by questions of race, class, gender, and other issues and looking for a new lens through which to examine them, and those well-versed in public philosophy looking for a one-stop guide.
Books are available for pre-order in-store or online. Only books purchased from Cellar Door Books will be granted access to the signing line.
