UNC Wilmington, Racial Justice Learning Community Series invites you to a discussion about the new edited collection Revisiting the Elegy in the Black Lives Matter Era. Dr. Maia Butler (English Department, Africana Studies, and GSRC) will host her co-author, Dr. Megan Feifer, along with editors, Drs. Sequoia Maner, Emily Ruth Rutter, and Darlene Anita Scott on a cross-disciplinary panel on elegiac traditions in the African diaspora at the intersection of art, activism, and theory.

At this event, they will be discussing the collection of critical and creative pieces broadly, as well as Drs. Butler and Feifer’s chapter in specific, “Edwidge Danticat’s Elegiac Project: A Transnational Historiography of U.S. Imperialist State Violence.” This conversation is open to faculty, staff, and students who want to explore poetic, artistic, and critical responses to Black Lives Matters themes and issues inside and out of the classroom.
