RWL Speaker Series: Black Maternal Health | Kimberly Harper, Ph.D.

Join the University of Tennessee’s Rhetoric Writing and Linguistics division (in collaboration with Syracuse University) as we explore Harper’s The Ethos of Black Mothers in America on February 12, 2024, from 5:00 – 6:30 pm EST. 

Harper’s book has become an essential study of the history and rhetoric of Black women’s maternal health care across multiple disciplines. She provides a candid and personal perspective of her pregnancy experiences as a Black mother in America while validating how Black mothers are worthy and deserve to be seen. Not since Patricia Hill Collins’ Black Feminist Thought has a book defiantly explored this overlooked content matter.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

The physical location of the book talk will take place in the LINDSAY YOUNG AUDITORIUM, HODGES LIBRARY.
