1 Comment

The Southern California Library will host a “Conversation” with Erin Aubry Kaplan on her new book, Black Talk, Blue Thoughts, and Walking the Color Line, and viewing from SCL’s collections of the lived histories of Black L.A.

From the invitation (and the book):

“Black folks in every place and station are intimately connected by history, experience, and socialization, whether we want to admit to that or not…I wanted to describe how all the ongoing battles for equality and acceptance, from affirmative action to public school and police reform, have influenced who we are, what we expect from the world, how we shop for shoes, how we operate daily in this social experiment called America.”

Date and Time: Weds., Nov. 9, 12:00 noon.

Southern California Library
6120 S. Vermont Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90044
