Since its original publication in 1994, MEMOIR OF A RACE TRAITOR: Fighting Racism in the American South (on sale September 24, 2019) has become a classic text of white antiracism. Now, this seminal book returns as a rousing testament of what can and must be done against America’s increasingly apocalyptic white supremacist movement. Mab Segrest will read from her book and discuss her decades of experience as a white lesbian organizing against far-right movements in the South.
Mab Segrest is professor emeritus of gender and women’s studies at Connecticut College and the author of Administrations of Lunacy and Memoir of a Race Traitor (both from The New Press). A longtime activist in social justice movements and a past fellow at the National Humanities Center, she lives in Durham, North Carolina.
