Alanah Davis: Women’s History Month Chat With Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal
Maryland Matters, March 16, 2021
by Alanah Davis
“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.
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.”
