Susan Straight & Emily Bernard at the Greenlight Bookstore
Fort Greene, Brooklyn, New York.
“Acclaimed editor of Remember Me to Harlem, Emily Bernard, presents her memoir Black is the Body. In this collection of essays, she explores how each of the essays goes beyond a narrative of black innocence and white guilt, how each is anchored in a mystery, and how each sets out to discover a new way of telling the truth as the author has lived it. A reception follows to celebrate both of these books.”
