READINGS BY A RACE TRAITOR
AN EVENING WITH MAB SEGREST

Simmons College
The Linda K. Paresky Conference Center
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.
