Pearl Cleage: Things I Should Have Told My Daughter

Pearl Cleage packed the house for one of our best ever author events featuring her new book, Things I Should Have Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons & Love Affairs. Teaching for Change board member and Spelman alumnae Nzinga Tull described the evening:

“Ms. Cleage was elegant, yet also warm and familiar. The audience questions were probing and all over the map: How do you approach being open about vulnerability? What was it like working for Maynard Jackson? How do you move between so many creative genres? How did your formative years inform your identity as a feminist? Cleage answered every question effortlessly with honesty, humor, and compelling insight. It was a delightful and memorable evening.”

The evening was hosted by Teaching for Change, National Alumnae Association of Spelman College (NAASC) DC Metro Chapter, and Busboys and Poets on April 24, 2014.
