Writers Discussion Series with Blair LM Kelley
Hitchcock Room | Thursday, November 2nd | 5:30PM
Join us at the Stone Center to discuss Black Folk – The Roots of the Black Working Class with acclaimed author and historian Blair LM Kelley herself! There have been countless books, articles, and televised reports in recent years about the almost mythic “white working class,” a tide of commentary that has obscured the labor, and even the very existence, of entire groups of working people, including everyday Black workers. In Black Folk, Dr. Blair LM Kelley treats them not just as laborers, or members of a class, or activists, but as people whose daily experiences mattered – to themselves, to their communities, and to a nation that denied that basic fact.
Free parking is available in the Bell Tower Parking Deck after 5pm.
