Join Kaplan and Als for a lively discussion of race and gender in America
New Yorker writer and cultural critic Hilton Als sits down with Boston-based author Carla Kaplan for what should be a lively discussion of race and gender in America. Kaplan's latest book, Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of the Black Renaissance, examines the white women who risked social ostracism to partake in the artistic and political movements of the Harlem Renaissance, while Als' new collection of essays finds him using luminaries like Truman Capote, Michael Jackson, and Eminem to drive his points home. Tonight's talk is free, but be sure to RSVP.
