Event description

Description

Blogger and essayist Morgan Jerkins boldly takes on the most incendiary of topics: the stew of racism, misogyny, and white-dominated feminism that sidelines black women from American discourse and influence. Her new book This Will Be My Undoing tallies the cost to us all of objectifying and silencing black women. Lauded by no less a voice than Roxane Gay, Jerkins' essays are a fearless tapestry of observation and personal experience. In an evening with Angie Coiro, host of KLF's This Is Now series, Morgan Jerkins examines what it means to walk through America as a black woman today.

Morgan Jerkins is a writer and contributing editor at Catapult.co, where she write the essay series To Be Seen and Unseen. Her work has been featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Elle, Rolling Stone, and BuzzFeed. This Will Be My Undoing is her first book.

Doors open at 3:00pm.
