Jill Louise Busby is an writer, filmmaker, and the person behind the now defunct “Jill is Black” account on Instagram. She joins The Stacks to discuss her debut book, Unfollow Me: Essay in Complicity. Our conversation examines the complexities of audience in relation to worth, real life vs. internet life, and the need for balance.
The Stacks Book Club selection for September is Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy by Heather Ann Thompson. We will discuss the book with Derecka Purnell on Wednesday September 29th.
