Women’s History Month talk at the DuSable Museum of African American History: “Always Keep the Records” – Ora Mobley Sweeting

IN CONVERSATION: ALWAYS KEEP THE RECORDS

Thursday March 29
6:00 PM  –  7:30 PM

 

Join the DuSable Museum and Angela Tate in a discussion on the archival activism of Ora Mobley Sweeting, an educator and poet who was active in Harlem from the 50s-80s. Sweeting’s life exemplifies the ways in which black women intervene in the margins of black politics and intellectual histories of blackness—a black feminist praxis with a long lineage reaching back to Harriet Jacobs and Anna Julia Cooper, and to black women across the Atlantic World.

Date: March 29, 2018 6:00pm-7:30pm
