Public Domestics: an experience of the book "Infamous Mothers" with Sagashus Levingston
Public Domestics is a public event attached to End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin’s Statewide Conference, "Collective Liberation: Movement Building for the Years Ahead." All are welcome to attend. Numerous pages from Infamous Mothers will be on display, starting at 3:30 p.m., giving participants the ability to walk through parts of the book. Then at 4:30 p.m., author Sagashus T. Levingston will read from the book and lead a discussion about what the stories of marginalized mothers have to teach us about our society and about ourselves. Ms. Levingston is a PhD candidate and instructor in the Department of English at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This project explores how real-life narratives describing Black motherhood can counter pervasive stereotypes, such as the "welfare queen" "the prostitute" or "the drug addict" and could help produce a more just, humane and creative society.
