AUTHOR SERIES: A Conversation with Sarah Bracey White; Author of Primary Lessons

When: Tue., Sept. 29, 3-4:30 p.m. 2015

“As an African-American child growing up in the segregated pre-Civil Rights South, Sarah Bracey White pushed against the social conventions that warned her not to rock the boat, even before she was old enough to fully understand her urge to defy the status quo. In her candid and poignant memoir, Primary Lessons, White recalls a childhood marked by equal measures of poverty and pride—formative years spent sorting through the “lessons” learned from a complicated relationship with her beloved, careworn mother and from a father’s absence engendered by racial injustice and compromised manhood.”(Press release from CavanKerry Press)
