When Ruth Sherman used Carolivia Herron’s children’s picture book, Nappy Hair, with her students at PS 75 in Brooklyn, New York, a perfect storm of controversy broke over the community and in the national media. Listen to Dr. Neal Lester and ASU students perform the book in a readers’ theater followed by a discussion of the controversy with author and Project Humanities Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Carolivia Herron.
Hosted by the ASU Department of English and Project Humanities.
