Event Details

"An impressively researched and documented collection of the finest thought produced by writers throughout the African Diaspora. A magnificent achievement." --Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

Her new book, “Bartlett’s Familiar Black Quotations,” culls five thousand quotes from the time of Ancient Egypt through American slavery, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights Era, Apartheid, to the present day. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. has written the foreword to this impressive compendium of passages from authors, artists, scientists, philosophers, theologians, activists, politicians, and many others. Join Powers in a presentation and signing of her book which promises to appeal not only to quote aficionados and researchers, but also to history buffs.
