Pearl Cleage and Free Womanhood

Event date: 
Sunday, December 9, 2012 - 12:30am to 2:00am

Join us for a very special evening honoring the release of the first book-length scholarly consideration of Pearl Cleage's body of work. For this evening's program the volume's editors, Tikenya Foster-Singletary and Aisha Francis will be on hand to discuss the work as will Pearl Cleage herself.

While academically critical, the essays mirror Cleage's own philosophical commitment to theoretical transparency and translation. The book includes an in-depth interview with the author and a foreword by former Cleage student and acclaimed novelist Tayari Jones in addition to essays from contributors representing an interdisciplinary cross-section of academic fields. 

This event is a Charis Circle From Margin to Center Literary Program and the suggested donation is $5.
