Westenley Alcenat, assistant professor of history at Fordham University, leads a discussion of "Libertie" by Kaitlyn Greenidge.

This virtual session (held via Google Meet) will focus on "Libertie" by Kaitlyn Greenidge. Westenley Alcenat, assistant professor of history at Fordham University, will lead the discussion. The book is described as “a coming of age story, tracing the travails of a free-born Black girl raised in Reconstruction-era Brooklyn. Libertie Sampson defies her doctor mother’s stifling dreams that her daughter will follow in her footsteps, instead following her fiancé to his home country of Haiti—where Libertie escapes American-style racism, but not the misogyny that leaves her subordinate to all men.”
