Book Talk by Pam Brooks today at 4:30pm

Join the Friends of the Oberlin College Library at a faculty book talk by Pamela Brooks, Associate Professor of African American Studies

Thursday, March 5, 4:30 p.m.
Moffett Auditorium, A Level, Mudd Center

Pam Brook’s new book, Boycotts, Buses, and Passes: Black Women’s Resistance in the U.S. and South Africa (University of Massachusetts Press, 2008), is a comparative history of the liberation struggles of women in the United States and South Africa. Drawing extensively on oral histories, the book portrays the rise of political consciousness and activism among black women in the two countries within the context of a larger global struggle to end the vestiges of European colonialism. “A very ambitious project, elegantly and sensitively written” (Françoise N. Hamlin, Brown University).
