Join UNC Charlotte’s Associate Professor of English and Director of Women’s and Gender Studies, Janaka Bowman Lewis, as she leads a conversation about African American women who were writing about liberation from slavery and oppression far earlier than civil rights discussions of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A reception and book signing will follow the conversation.
