“Delta dandi”: Talking About Collective Grief and Trauma

Play

CLAREMONT, Calif. (September 17, 2008) — Award-winning author Sharon Bridgforth will present from her new work, delta dandi, September 18, at noon in the Hampton Room of the Malott Commons at Scripps College. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Delta dandi is a weave of monologues, chants, choral tellings, blood memory, and song. Delta dandi asks, “How does collective grief and trauma inform the African American experience?”

Bridgforth won the Lambda Literary Award for her previous work, the bull-jean stories, and is currently touring The love conjure/blue Text Installation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Malott Commons Office and the Intercollegiate Women’s Studies Program.
