February 16 @ 5:30 PM PST

Join MoAD and the Mechanics’ Institute in presenting Authors in Conversation | Read Until You Understand: The Profound Wisdom of Black Life and Literature by Farah Jasmine Griffin in Conversation with Julie Lythcott-Haims.

An an elegant blending of memoir and close readings of a wide range of works, including novels, poems, speeches, music, and art, Griffin makes connections across genres, throughout the centuries, expanding the readers experience of the words to touch on themes that are central to the human experience: mercy and justice, rage and democracy, love and death, grief and beauty. Through Griffin’s analysis, readers are struck by this immense gift and grace of African American literature which finds beauty in resistance and insists on creation in the face of annihilation.
