Scenes from a Jamaican Childhood

Scenes from a Jamaican Childhood

Tuesday, November 1st 2011:

Co-sponsored by CLAGS, the CUNY Center for the Humanities, and the NYPL

Join Thomas Glave (English, General Literature, and Rhetoric, SUNY Binghamton) for this year’s Audre Lorde/Essex Hemphill Memorial Lecture. Thomas Glave is the author of Whose Song? and Other Stories, The Torturer’s Wife, and the essay collection Words to Our Now: Imagination and Dissent (winner of a 2005 Lambda Literary Award). He is editor of the anthology Our Caribbean: A Gathering of Lesbian and Gay Writing from the Antilles (winner of a 2008 Lambda Literary Award).

The Audre Lorde/Essex Hemphill Memorial Lecture is meant to commemorate the lives of the American poets, Audre Lorde (1934 -1992) and Essex Hemphill (1957 -1995), as well as to encourage exciting scholarship and literary production within the communities to whom their poetry and prose spoke. Both Lorde and Hemphill were instrumental in the development of distinctive forms of writing among American poets, particularly people of color and members of the LGBT community.

The Skylight Room (9100)
CUNY Graduate Center
365 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY 10016
Begins at 6pm
