Next up: Tracy Sharpley-Whiting on Belle da Costa Greene, a 20th century U.S. librarian who entered the rarefied worlds of the Morgans and Vanderbilts by “passing” as white. She created NY's Morgan Library & Museum.

Excited that my first book (Hannah Arendt and the Negro Question) has been translated into French! Gratitude for reaching a broader audience, especially Black French speaking members of the African Diaspora!
#OnThisDay in 1988, Toni Morrison won a Pulitzer Prize for her novel “Beloved.” The novel, which was set in the years following the Civil War, was inspired by the life of Margaret Garner, an African American woman who escaped enslavement in Kentucky in 1856. #WomensHistoryMonth
