I gave a talk at The Roundtable for Black Feminist and Womanist Theory. The three-day event attracted scholars whose work is grounded in one or both constructs. My talk highlighted one aspect of my book, the Overlooked Voices of Hurricane Katrina: Mississippi Black Women’s Resilience and Recovery. Scholars received my talk well and I fielded questions during the discussion segment which enabled me to share aspects of the field and data that distinguished these Mississippi women’s experiences from survivors in other locations and social class. The Roundtable was not recorded but you can get your copy of my book here: https://opheraadavis.com/book/overlooked-hurricane-
Check back next week for more details on the weather outlook or information on my book.
