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 Womens 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.
