Black Writers in a Post-Obama America, Tuesday, February 27th. Join us for a panel discussion hosted by the Brooklyn Historical Society. This panel begs the question, does literature by black writers demand a response to the country’s racism? Especially today, is there an onus on writers of color to shine a spotlight on racial injustice? Hear from authors Kaitlyn Greenidge, Bernice McFadden, Garnette Cadogan, and Quincy Troupe in a discussion moderated by novelist and Distinguished Professor at Hunter College, Elizabeth Nunez. A reception will precede the panel discussion. The reception will begin at 5:30 pm and the program will begin at 6:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served. To RSVP, please call 212-998-2400 or fill out the online form.
Write your response to the Metal Gear Solid documentaries OR the Making Oprah podcast episodes. Do not write summaries. In other words, do not regurgitate. Discuss any epiphanies or insights that occurred while watching, compare and contrast the process of the two videos or episodes, how it reflects your own process (or does not and why) or how it will inform or change your own process (or will not and why).
