Coming at Brooklyn Historical Society

Do highly regarded, award winning fiction writers of color, like Colson Whitehead (photo), appeal to many non-minority readers? Does “a predominantly white publishing industry maintain[] the assumption that black literature lacks marketability”? Tomorrow (Tuesday, February 21) evening at 6:30 the Brooklyn Historical Society will host a panel discussion, led by Hunter College professor and author Elizabeth Nunez and featuring several representatives of publishing firms, both large and “indie.”
Admission is $10, or $5 for BHS members; buy tickets here.

This Thursday, February 23, BHS, along with Groupmuse, will present “A Chamber Music Celebration of Black History Month,” featuring a distinguished group of African American musicians performing works by African American composers. More information and purchase tickets here.
