At the Dark End of the Street Book Discussion Group

All faculty and staff are invited to join a reading group dedicated to reading and discussing the book, At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape and Resistance ~ A New History of the Civil Rights Movement by Danielle McGuire. The book discusses how African American women insisted on bodily integrity during the Civil Rights years and shows how they fought against racial and sexual violence in spite of how dangerous it was to speak about it.

Thanks to the Humanities Endowed Chair, the first 20 people who RSVP will receive a copy of the book and some supporting materials.

Please email Kristin Mapel Bloomberg to RSVP for a light dinner and energetic discussion facilitated by Professor Colleen Bell on Thursday, January 16 from 5 - 7 p.m.  In order for a book to be delivered on time, please RSVP by Friday, December 13.
no later than Friday, Dec. 13 so a book can be delivered to you.

Participants in the book group are also invited to a presentation by the author on campus on January 23 from 12 - 1:15 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.
