She Persisted: Women of Letters and the American South

EVENT: She Persisted: Women of Letters and the American South

Works of art and literature have long inspired one another. Whether the Bloomsbury Group, the Aesthetic Movement, or Black Mountain College, their evolution is often contemporaneous. Inspired by Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in The Johnson Collection, and in partnership with woman-owed bookstore Itinerant Literate, join us in conversation with Professor and Director of Southern Studies at the College of Charleston, Julia Eichelberger, recipient of the National Book Award for Poetry, Nikky Finney, and author of the Charleston-based novel The Cigar Factory, Michele Moore, as we consider the literary traditions and social landscape that gave rise to voices like Eudora Welty, Zora Neale Hurston, and Harper Lee, and that continue to inspire women writers and artists across the south.

Michiel Perry

Michiel is a Black Southern Belle living a lowcountry life. I love all things fashion, home decor and southern! When I am not running around doing fun stuff for Black Southern Belle, I live in antique stores and have a minor obsession with historic homes 🙂
