Margo Jefferson on Negroland
Dweck Center at the Brooklyn Public Library, Central Library
Brooklyn, NY
Share this event:


At once celebratory and elegiac, a deeply felt meditation on race, sex, and American culture through the prism of the author's rarefied upbringing and education among a black elite. Born in 1947 in upper-crust black Chicago, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Margo Jefferson has spent most of her life among (call them what you will) the colored aristocracy, the colored elite, the blue-vein society. Since the nineteenth century they have stood apart, these inhabitants of Negroland, "a small region of Negro America where residents were sheltered by a certain amount of privilege and plenty." Reckoning with the strictures and demands of Negroland at crucial historical momentsthe civil rights movement, the dawn of feminism, the fallacy of post-racial AmericaJefferson brilliantly charts the twists and turns of a life informed by psychological and moral contradictions.
