Women's Studies/SCI book group for "At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance" by Danielle McGuire
Friday Feb 22
5:15 PM - 6:15 PM
The book is from 2011 and, in it, "We see how and why Rosa Parks, instead of becoming a leader of the movement she helped to start, was turned into a symbol of virtuous black womanhood, sainted and celebrated for her quiet dignity, prim demeanor, and middle-class propriety‹her radicalism all but erased.

The book group will meet at Brewin Around coffee shop
