Book Club: Secret Daughter by June Cross

Wednesday May 28, 2008 2:00PM This is a past program
Secret Daughter is the autobiography of a mixed race daughter and the mother who gave her away. June Cross was born during the birth of the Civil Rights Movement to an aspiring white actress and a well-known black comic from the forties duo Stump and Stumpy. She attended Harvard in the 1970s, the heyday of black radicalism, and is currently a successful journalist, author and activist. Discussion led by Tameka Norris, an undergraduate in the UCLA department of art, an ArtsBridge and ArtsIN scholar, and a student educator at the Hammer Museum. 


Public programs are made possible, in part, by major gifts from the Annenberg Foundation, Ann and Jerry Moss, and Mimi and Werner Wolfen. Additional support is provided by Laura Donnelley, Bronya and Andrew Galef, Erika Glazer, an anonymous donor, and the Hammer Programs Committee. Hammer Lectures are supported, in part, by the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation.
