Author Event with Aimee Meredith Cox
Shapshifters: Black Girls and Choreography of Citizenship
Saturday, November 21 @ 2pm
In Shapeshifters Aimee Meredith Cox explores how young Black women in a Detroit homeless shelter contest stereotypes, critique their status as partial citizens, and negotiate poverty, racism, and gender violence to create and imagine lives for themselves. With Shapeshifters Cox gives a voice to young Black women who find creative and non-normative solutions to the problems that come with being young, Black, and female in America.
Aimee Meredith Cox is Assistant Professor of African and African American Studies at Fordham University.
