Women's Studies/SCI book group for "At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance" by Danielle McGuire
Friday Feb 22
5:15 PM - 6:15 PM
The book is from 2011 and, in it, "We see how and why Rosa Parks, instead of becoming a leader of the movement she helped to start, was turned into a symbol of virtuous black womanhood, sainted and celebrated for her quiet dignity, prim demeanor, and middle-class propriety‹her radicalism all but erased. And we see as well how thousands of black women whose courage and fortitude helped to transform America were reduced to the footnotes of history."
The book group will meet at Brewin Around coffee shop
