The Center for Black Literature & Culture is proud to host acclaimed newspaper columnist Rochelle Riley at the Central Indianapolis Public Library at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, February 23, 2018.
The event will include a presentation of excerpts from Riley’s new book, The Burden: African Americans and the Enduring Impact of Slavery. Riley and her guests, A’Lelia Bundles, great-great-granddaughter of Madam C. J. Walker, and Tamara Winfrey-Harris, author of The Sisters Are Alright: Changing the Broken Narrative of Black Women in America, will have a conversation about “The Burden” and how slavery’s aftermath continues to diminish the lives of black Americans today, followed by a book signing.
