Akasha Hull recently spoke about two of her publications, All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave: Black Women’s Studies (1982) and NEICY: A Novel (2012)
A Shreveport, Louisiana, native. Dr. Hull was a member of the groundbreaking Combahee River Collective, which shaped her trajectory as a poet, scholar and novelist. Her landmark work in African American Studies and Women’s Studies has impacted how we theorize, write and teach in these disciplines today.
The Feminist Press has recently republished Some of Us Are Brave (with a new Foreword by Brittney Cooper). Some copies of the book will be available for purchase at the talk. You might also consider order and bringing your copy of NEICY: A Novel or Some of Us Are Brave to read in advance and bring for the book signing that will follow the talk.
