In celebration of its elevation to departmental status, Barnard Africana Studies hosts its third annual Africana Distinguished Alumnae event, this year honoring Thulani Davis. A journalist, playwright, and author of six books including My Confederate Kinfolk and 1959, Davis has recently embarked on dissertation research and will discuss her current study, “Fugitive Freedoms: A Race, Politics, and Blues Circuit Before Civil Rights.” This ongoing project explores broad-based forms of political activism forged through a circuit of gathering points for African Americans in labor camps, agricultural distribution, and tent shows which later became important working-class spheres of organized resistance.
