Description: Join us on Friday, February 22nd at 6:00 p.m. as Emily Bernard reads and discusses her book Black is the Body: Stories from My Grandmother's Time, My Mother's Time, and Mine. An extraordinary, exquisitely written memoir (of sorts) that looks at race–in a fearless, penetrating, honest, true way–in twelve telltale, connected, deeply personal essays that explore, up-close, the complexities and paradoxes, the haunting memories and ambushing realities of growing up black in the South with a family name inherited from a white man, of getting a PhD from Yale, of marrying a white man from the North, of adopting two babies from Ethiopia, of teaching at a white college and living in America’s New England today.
