Celebrating Khary Lazarre-White’s Debut Novel “Passage” At Harlem Arts Salon

Passage tells the story of Warrior, a young black man navigating the snowy winter streets of Harlem and Brooklyn in 1993. Warrior is surrounded by deep family love and a sustaining connection to his history, bonds that arm him as he confronts the urban forces that surround him-both supernatural and human-including some that seek his very destruction.

For Warrior and his peers, the reminders that they, as black men, aren’t meant to be fully free, are everywhere. Warrior isn’t even safe in his own mind. He’s haunted by the spirits of ancestors and of the demons of the system of oppression.

Please join us in hoisting a toast in celebration of Khary Lazarre-White’s debut novel, Passage, on Sunday, September 24th, 2017, at 2:30pm and engage in conversation with one of Harlem’s most important community activists and cultural figures.
