Dinner with Dr. Lynne Bryant
Monday Feb 25
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
McConnell Library, The Center for Diversity and Inclusion, and the Women's Studies Program are co-sponsoring a really great opportunity to receive a free book by author Lynne Bryant, read the book, and then be a guest at a dinner with the author so you can meet her and have conversation about her work. There is no charge for the book or the dinner.
Dr. Bryant writes about race and gender in the deep south. She grew up in rural Mississippi during the Civil Rights Movement. No place in this country saw as much racially motivated violence as did Mississippi during those years. Bryant uses her story-telling to come to grips with, and to try to understand, the complexities of race and racism in the South.
Please let Alyssa Archer, McConnell Library, know if you are interested in participating in this really great activity.
