Her first book, "Embracing Sisterhood: Class, Identity, and Contemporary Black Women" (Rowman & Littlefield, 2006), analyzes how contemporary black women's ideas of black womanhood and sisterhood merge with social class status to shape certain attachments and detachments among them. She is currently completing "Marriage in Black: The Pursuit of Married Life among Native Blacks, African immigrants and Caribbean Immigrants in the United States" (Routledge, pending), a comparative study of black marriage in the United States among native blacks, African immigrants, and Caribbean immigrants, and whites (co-authored with Caitlin Cross-Barnet).

      A provocative exploration of one black man's memories of childhood. It interweaves Bradley's writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, "Dark Archives" aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males. Bradley powerfully combines image and text in this deeply moving meditation on narrative agency, on the family as archive, on being a young black man, and on being Andre Bradley. Andre Bradley (b. 1987) lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. Bradley is a graduate of Hampshire College where he was selected in 2008 as a James Baldwin Scholar and in 2012, was a recipient of the first annual Elaine Mayes Award for Photography. Bradley received a Master's of Fine Art from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2015 where he was selected as a president's scholar and was recipient of the T.C. Colley Award for Photographic Excellence.

Harley commissioned Karola Obermüller's PERSEVERE, a 20-minute work for voice, harp, and live electronics. This NEA ArtWorks commission juxtaposes the Ther?g?th? ['Verses of the Elder Nuns'], the oldest known collection of women's literature, in its original Pali language with Tibetan texts from female Tibetan esoterics. Moshe Shulman's Seven Prophetesses, a 2015 Fromm Foundation Commission, incorporates poetry written by poet Juli Varshavsky. Varshavsky's text describes the seven prophetesses in the Jewish tradition. The recital also features selections from Jodi Goble's song cycle Valentines from Amherst. The cycle won second place in the 2017 National Teachers of Singing's Annual Art Song Competition. Goble's work for solo voice and piano sets poetry by Emily Dickinson.

      In 2012, Chris Hayes published "Twilight of the Elites: America After Meritocracy," a prescient analysis of how Americans' loss of trust in public institutions might lead to a political crisis. That same political and historical acumen informs Hayes's latest book, "A Colony in a Nation," which reveals that by every empirical measure -- wealth, unemployment, incarceration, and school segregation -- racial inequality hasn't improved since 1968. Bringing his signature analysis to this essential issue, Hayes will be joined in conversation by Scripps politics faculty Vanessa Tyson. Hayes is the host of "All In with Chris Hayes" on MSNBC and an editor-at-large at The Nation. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and son. Tyson is an assistant professor of politics at Scripps College. Her latest book, "Twists of Fate: Multiracial Coalitions and Minority Representation in the U.S. House of Representatives", was released in September 2016 by Oxford University Press.
