On Thursday, May 20, the popular Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester, Virginia, held a virtual Lunch & Learn that featured Shenandoah University Assistant Professor of English Christin Marie Taylor, Ph.D., who is the author of “Labor Pains: New Deal Fictions of Race, Work, and Sex in the South” (Margaret Walker Alexander Series in African American Studies). The discussion detailed how from the 1930s to the 1960s, the Popular Front produced a significant era in African American literary radicalism. Along with discussing the political and cultural contexts of the New Deal Era, Taylor explored the ways fiction writers used the theme of Black labor to imagine a fuller portrait of human experience.
