  • Transforming Scriptures: African American Women Writers and the Bible by Katherine Clay Bassard

    February 18, 2010. Associate professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University and ordained minister Dr. Katherine Clay Bassard discussed her book Transforming Scriptures, which examines the work of African American women writers to explore their profound intellectual, even theological engagements with the Bible—the book that has been referred to as the great code of Western civilization. As the title indicates, these encounters with the Bible were, indeed, transformational, as black women writers both reshaped and were shaped by the scriptures they appropriated for their own self-representation. Cosponsored by the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, VMFA Community Affairs, and VMFA Friends of African and African American Art.

February 18, 2010. Associate professor of English at Virginia Commonwealth University and ordained minister Dr. Katherine Clay Bassard discussed her book Transforming Scriptures, which examines the work of African American women writers to explore their profound intellectual, even theological engagements with the Bible—the book that has been referred to as the great code of Western civilization. As the title indicates, these encounters with the Bible were, indeed, transformational, as black women writers both reshaped and were shaped by the scriptures they appropriated for their own self-representation. Cosponsored by the Black History Museum and Cultural Center of Virginia, VMFA Community Affairs, and VMFA Friends of African and African American Art.
