Book Talk: Limited Choices

Saturday, February 5, 2022

Dr. Andrea Douglas talks with co-authors Emily K. Abel and Margaret K. Nelson about their book Limited Choices. The book tells the story of Mable Jones, a Black native of Charlottesville, who described herself as a children’s nurse, recounting her employment in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s. Emily Abel and Margaret Nelson, whose mother employed Jones, use the interview and their own childhood memories as a starting point in piecing together Jones’s life in an effort to investigate the impact of structural racism, and a discriminatory system their family helped uphold.

The talk will be presented live on our facebook and YouTube pages.
