Come join us on Tuesday, Feb. 7 as Dr. Cheryl Hicks brings forward the voices and views of black working-class women, especially southern migrants, in early 20th-century New York. In her book Talk With You Like a Woman: African American Women, Justice, and Reform in New York, 1890-1935, she explores the impact of racism and sexism on these women and their families, who sometimes turned to laws and the justice system to try to protect – and at times control – these women. Through their stories Hicks sheds light on urban reform and criminal justice issues.
