"(Re) Reading Mr.__" will present a transgressive reading of the antagonist in Alice Walker's timeless novel, The Color Purple. This discussion will seek to open dialogue about the ways in which Black men are portrayed by Black women authors in literature, and how society at large misreads Black men through fragmented lenses as “damaged goods.”
