Join us for a book talk with Dr. Monique-Adelle Callahan.
About Dr. Callahan's book Rupture:
"Through a combination of personal narrative and historical research, Rupture weaves together the history of enslaved women in the Americas and themes of life, love, and loss. A nursery rhyme motif in the book juxtaposes the innocence of childhood and the insidious transgenerational trauma of slavery. The poems trace the author’s own journey through pregnancy and into motherhood as it poses its own questions to the history of African-American motherhood, inevitably imprinted by the legacy of slavery in the Americas. Ultimately, the book heralds the creativity and resilience that characterizes black life." (Further information about the book.)
Cosponsored by the Department of English, Writing, and Communication, Academic Affairs, and the Library Learning Commons.
