“The Shadow Book” will focus on the cultural politics inherent in representing slavery in contemporary children’s books and media from the Civil Rights Movement to the Movement for Black Lives and the recent 1619 Project. Recent children’s books about slavery will be presented, and responses from a broad spectrum of constituents will be analyzed. The talk will conclude with implications for the future.
