Tamara Winfrey-Harris - SISTERS ARE ALRIGHT
14th & V | Langston Room | July 29, 2015 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Politics & Prose at Busboys and Poets presents Tamara Winfrey-Harris discussing Sisters are Alright.

In her first book Winfrey-Harris, a journalist with a vital online and print presence, responds to a 2010 Essence report finding that 93% of black women are disturbed by the images they find of themselves in media, music, and entertainment. Tackling the caricatures head-on, Winfrey-Harris looks at the myths black women have faced since their arrival in North America and defuses the caricatures with stories of real women.
