Tracy Sharpley-Whiting: "The Other Americans"

Two events with Dr. Tracy Sharpley-Whiting, a lunchtime seminar and an evening presentation with a reception to follow:

When the Research Becomes Personal, or "Men I'd Like to Have Known"
12-12:30pm LUNCH | 12:30-2pm SEMINAR
From Slavery to Freedom Lab | Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C106

Explores Dr. Sharpley-Whiting's encounter with slavery archives, her runaway slave great, great grandfather, and relation to Daniel Boone and the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The Other Americans
Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall | Smith Warehouse, Bay 4, C105
Drawn from Bricktop's Paris and its exploration of black women expats in Paris, this talk explores the centrality of black women in our cultural imagination, despite their erasure, and Dr. Sharpley-Whiting's own attempts to recover them, beginning with the volume, Black Venus.
