NEWS FROM ANNA

RECORDING OF NELLA LARSEN PRESENTATION

On March 21, 2024, I presented a talk about the well-known Harlem Renaissance author, Nella Larsen, at the Museum of Danish America's Brown Bag Lunch series. The presentation focuses on Larsen's connections with Denmark and with the Black community during the Harlem Renaissance. I read from her autobigraphical novel, Quicksand and talk about the issues she dealt with on both sides of the color line as a biracial woman. The presentation has now been recorded and can be viewed on the museum's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=frn5AFOGMkg If you're not familiar with this author, she's worth getting to know!

 

In other news, if you still have an installment or a chapter of Fissure: A Life Between Cultures left to read, or you were waiting to read the the available work in its entirety, now is the time! On Wednesday, May 22, Fissure will go offline.
