“What’s up, y’all! So I interviewed two really down-to-earth authors named Gilly Segal and Kimberly Jones, thanks to the nonprofit educational group Maryland Humanities.

A Zoom conversation with three women: at the top right is Gilly Segal, a white woman with curly redhair and black t-shirt. To her right is Alanah Nichole Davis, a Black woman with a yellow, floral shirt. On the bottom, is Kimberly Jones, a Black woman with black hair dyed with blue streaks. She also wears a black shirt.
Clockwise starting at the top left: Gilly Segal, Alanah Davis, and Kimberly Jones 

Maryland Humanities is hosting them officially for a talk titled “Why It Matters: Reckoning with Race. Equity. Allyship.” on Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., where they’ll discuss their best-selling book, “I’m Not Dying With You Tonight,” a young adult novel inspired by the unfair death of Freddie Gray right here in Baltimore.

In their conversation they’ll touch on some of today’s most pressing topics — the recent resurgence of our country’s reckoning with racial inequity, a video that went viral after the death of George Floyd, and reaching beyond platitudes to work together on issues of common concern.”
