Schomburg Center: Between The Lines: "Amiable with Big Teeth" by Claude McKay: A Roundtable Discussion Monday, June 12 at 6:30 PM

Amiable with Big Teeth
Claude McKay

Schomburg Center:

The unexpected discovery in 2009 of a completed typescript of Claude McKay’s final novel was celebrated as one of the most significant literary events in recent years. Building on the already extraordinary legacy of McKay’s life and work, Amiable with Big Teeth centers on the efforts by Harlem intelligentsia to organize support for the liberation of fascist-controlled Ethiopia, a crucial but largely forgotten event in American history.

Co-editors Brent Hayes Edwards and Jean-Christophe Cloutier will be joined by Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts, author of Harlem Is Nowhere: A Journey to the Mecca of Black America and Dagmawi Woubshet, Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of Pennsylvania, to discuss the significance of Amiable with Big Teeth for our understanding of McKay's career, black internationalism, and Popular Front politics.
