Going to put the Madame C. J. Walker monument everywhere. Thanks.
Thank you to NeoGriot Kalamu ya Salaam for posting this 2013 interview with Brenda Marie Osbey on her long poem History:
Looking forward to participating on this roundtable at this year’s ASALH in Cincinnati!! The show may be canceled, but I’ll be #TeamTubman and #TeamErnestine forever. And I’m joining Regina N. Bradley, Deirdre Cooper Owens, Janell Hobson, and Amrita Chakrabarti Myers to discuss the show, the good, the bad, the provocative, and what it means to have histories of slavery on the small screen.
Details below. Be sure to book your flights for Wednesday so you can join us for this Thursday morning conversation.
And if you haven’t checked out Treva B. Lindsey’s interview with Aisha Hinds, the actress who played Harriet Tubman in the show, read it here.
