DaMaris B. Hill - A Bound Woman Is a Dangerous Thing: The Incarceration of African American Women from Harriet Tubman to Sandra Bland

Upcoming Event
Friday, February 1, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Hill’s powerful work combines history and biography, poetry and story, scholarship and emotion to evoke the indomitable spirit of generations of Black women. Focusing on bondage, the book explores not only the physical confinement of slavery and prison so many African-American women have been subject to, but the equally repressive social and intellectual constraints they’ve been forced to live under. Channeling figures including Zora Neale Hurston, Lucille Clifton, Fannie Lou Hamer, Grace Jones, and Eartha Kitt, Hill, a poet and assistant professor of creative writing and African American and Africana studies at the University of Kentucky, bears witness to the sins of America’s past.
