In honor of Black History Month and Women’s History Month, we invite you to join us for a conversation about the role Black women have played in shaping American history with New York Times bestselling author Anna Malaika Tubbs. Anna’s book examines the unsung and overlooked stories of three extraordinary women who, in the shadow of Jim Crow, raised their sons with a steadfast belief in the worth of Black people and a commitment to fighting for equal justice and dignity. The book, The Three Mothers: How the Mothers of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and James Baldwin Shaped a Nation, was published by Flatiron Books in February 2021. A New York Times bestseller and an Amazon Editor’s choice, the book has achieved critical acclaim. Anna holds a Masters in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies and a Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Cambridge in addition to a Bachelors in Medical Anthropology from Stanford University. She has published articles on topics ranging from celebrating motherhood to addressing the forced sterilization of Black women as well as the importance of feminism, intersectionality, and inclusivity. Her work has been featured in TIME, HuffPost, For Harriet, Darling, and Blavity.
McCarter & English’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee, Women’s Initiative, and Social Justice Project are proud to present this incredible conversation with Anna.
