Body Talk, August 18th
Last week's readings hosted by the Black Gay and Lesbian Archive at the Schomburg Center were a tremendous success. Above are pictured Pamela Sneed, Linda Villarosa, and Cheryl Clarke during the Q&A after their reading on August 18th. The readings were held in the Manuscripts, Archives and Rare Books Reading Room (you can see newly acquired boxes for processing in the back...). For more pictures click through below.
Cheryl Clarke works the mic with selections from her collection The Days of Good Looks and the new anthology To be Left with the Body.
