Attend a special event with Emily Bernard as she discuses her new book, "Black is the Body," Stories from my grandmother's time, my mother's time, and my time.
“Blackness is an art, not a science,” writes Emily Bernard. “It is a paradox: intangible and visceral; a situation and a story. It is the thread that connects these essays, but its significance as an experience emerges randomly, unpredictably…Race is the story of my life, and therefore black is the body of this book.”
This fearless and penetrating memoir has already been lauded as “contemplative and compassionate” (Publishers Weekly), “clear and confident” (LitHub), and “deeply felt, unflinchingly honest, and openly questioning” (Kirkus). The publication of BLACK IS THE BODY indeed marks “the emergence of an extraordinary voice on race in America” (O Magazine).
