Annual Big Read
Feb 27 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
The sixth-annual MEC BIG read welcomes poet, scholar and author Hafizah Augustus Geter, author of the memoir The Black Period: On Personhood, Race and Origin. A work that “crosses continents, grapples with white supremacy, and explores how the origin of stories we inherit can be remade, featuring original art from the author’s father renowned artist Tyrone Geter.” (Penguin Random House).
The author will be in conversation with MEC Assistant Professor Darrel Holnes. “I say ‘The Black Period,’ and mean ‘home’ in all it’s shapeshifting ways.” Hafizah Geter.
This is a virtual event.
