Play • 28 min

In this episode of Armchair Historians,  Anne Marie talks to Dr. Tara Green. Dr. Green has recently published not on but two books, See Me Naked and Love, Activism, and the Respectable Life of Alice Dunbar-Nelson.

See Me Naked: takes a look at the lives of noted black women, including actress, singer, and activist Lena Horne, stand-up comedian Moms Mabley, teacher and Harlem Rennaisance influencer Yolande DuBois, and blues singer and performer Memphis Minnie, and how, despite their public profiles, discovered ways to enjoy pleasure.

Love, Activism, and the Respectable Life of Alice Dunbar-Nelson: about the love one Black woman had for her race, of men and women, and, finally, of herself.

Dr. Green writes that her Black Southern family immersed her in a culture of storytelling as a condition of her birth. She learned about their deliberate embrace of laughter and love as they navigated the everyday challenges of being Black in America. Their gift of cultural practices is her inspiration as a professor, writer, and mentor.
 
Dr. Green also says, her family inspired her to study the lives of Black folks through literature. She began her formal studies at Dillard University.

Today she is an African American Studies professor with over 20 years of teaching literature and culture. She is the author and editor of 6 books on the lives and experiences of African Americans in twentieth-century literature and film. Dr. Green is a recognized academic leader who is dedicated to building diverse, respectful, inclusive communities in higher education.
