READINGS BY A RACE TRAITOR
AN EVENING WITH MAB SEGREST
September 19, 2007

300 The Fenway, Boston, MA
MAB SEGREST is a scholar, writer and activist with three decades’
experience in feminist, anti-racist, and lesbian/gay organizing.
Currently she chairs the Gender and Women’s Studies Department at
Connecticut College. Memoirs of a Race Traitor reflects on her
experience as a white lesbian organizing against a virulent Far Right
movement in North Carolina as part of a larger meditation on the
meanings of whiteness in Southern and U. S. history. Howard Zinn
commented “…it is a political memoir but its language is poetic and
its tone passionate.” In Born to Belonging: Writings on Spirit and
Justice, Segrest uses travel memoirs in a search for alternatives to
the apartheid of her Southern childhood, negotiating history,
philosophy, theology, autobiography and reporting. Segrest will also
reflect on her current work on understanding Hurricane Katrina and on
activism within and beyond the academy.
