Dr. Megan Finch on James Baldwin's The Price of the Ticket | Lecture

This talk was recorded on March 20, 2024 and is available via the Weisman’s YouTube channel. This discussion was led by Dr. Megan Finch, Assistant Professor in the English department at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. Dr. Finch's expertise lies in American literature, with a focus on representations of "madness" within late 20th-century black women's novels. Her writing has been published in notable academic journals, and she was part of the curating team for the exhibit Dark Testament: A Century of Black Writers on Justice at the American Writers Museum in Chicago.

Presented in conversation with the exhibition, More Various, More Beautiful, More Terrible, now on view in the Weisman’s Woodhouse Family Gallery.
