Baruch College Women’s and Gender Studies Program presents:
A reading and celebration of Bridgett Davis’s new novel
Into the Go-Slow
Tuesday, November 18, 1:00-2:30pm, NVC 14-270
A Woman’s Journey between Detroit and Africa
It's 1986 and 21-year-old Angie mourns the death of her brilliant and radical sister Ella. On impulse, she travels from Detroit to the place where Ella tragically died four years before—Nigeria. She retraces her sister's steps, all the while navigating the chaotic landscape of a major African country on the brink of democracy careening toward a coup d'état. Against a backdrop of Nigeria's infamous go-slow—traffic as wild and surprising as a Fela lyric—Angie begins to unravel the mysteries of the past, and opens herself up to love and life after Ella.
Professor Davis teaches journalism and creative writing courses within the journalism major at the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences. Davis earned a BA in English from Spelman College in Atlanta and an MS in Journalism from Columbia University. Her debut novel, Shifting through Neutral, was a finalist for the 2005 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. In 2007, she received the Excellence in Education Award by the New York Association of Black Journalists.
