As Kevin Young points out in Bunk, his new book of essays, it’s no secret that communities of color have been plagued with hoaxes, humbugs and much fake news ever since Cristobal Colon (aka Christopher Columbus) invaded these shores, causing fearfulness which resulted in deep seated racism.
In this More Than a Single Story conversation, Carolyn Holbrook will explore with Sharon Day, Kathryn Haddad, Ed Bok Lee, Alexs Pate and Tlahtoki Xochimeh the past and present ways our communities have been tricked, lied to and misaligned through literature, news, and government policies. We will discuss the effects these hoaxes have had on our communities over many generations, and the writing that is coming out of the current political climate.
Opening poem by Anais Deal-Marquez.
