Fall Lunch Lecture: Black California with Apara Nanda

Fall Lunch Lecture: Black California with Apara Nanda

10/25/11 11:45-1:00pm Nobili Dining Room


Co-sponsored by English and Ethnic Studies


Black California  is the first comprehensive anthology celebrating black writing through almost two centuries of Californian history. In a patchwork quilt pieced from poetry, fiction, essays, drama, and memoirs, this anthology traces the trajectory of African American writers. Each pieve gives a voice to the resonating rhythms that created the African American literary tradition in California. These voices speak of dreams and disasters, of heroic achievement and tragic failures, of freedom and betrayal, of racial discrimination and subsequent restoration all setting the pulse of the black California experience.

Books will be avilable for purchase at this event.
