We will examine overarching themes, hybridity, historical nuances, technique, and writing with courage from Jamaica Kincaid, Zora Neale Hurston, and Edwidge Danticat. Discussion will include intersection(s) and entry points of race, culture, and sexuality and what it means when, as Audre Lorde said, “There’s always someone asking you to underline one piece of yourself—whether it’s Black, woman, mother, dyke, teacher, etc.—because that’s the piece that they need to key in to.” We’ll write pieces that demonstrate courageous hybrid writing and end with a workshop and group share out.
