  • 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.

    European African Black Queens Madonnas And Goddesses Who Dominated The History This unique volume provides an overview of the black queens, madonnas, and goddesses who dominated the history and imagination of ancient times. The authors have concentrated on Ethiopia and Egypt because the documents of the Nile Valley are voluminous compared to the sketchier records in other parts of Africa, but also because the imagination of the world, not just that of Africa, was haunted by these women. They are just as prominent a feature of European mythology as of African reality. The book is divided into three parts: Ethiopia and Egyptian Queens and Goddesses; Black Women in Ancient Art; and Conquerors and Courtesans. This second edition contains two new chapters, one on Hypatia and women's rights in...

The British Council believes that living in a diverse society is a positive thing and that this diversity should be recognised, encouraged and above all respected.
