Author Talk Featuring Dr. Lynnette Mawhinney

Thursday, December 9, 2021 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Join us for a discussion with Lynnette Mawhinney, associate professor and chair of the Department of Urban Education at Rutgers University–Newark, about her children’s book, Lulu the One and Only (Magination Press, 2020).

In the book, Lulu loves her family, but people are always asking, “What are you?” Lulu hates that question. Her brother inspires her to come up with a power phrase so she can easily express who she is, not what she is.

Mawhinney is an award-winning author of academic books. Her most recent co-edited book is Strong Black Girls: Reclaiming Schools in Their Own Image (Teachers College Press, 2020). Mawhinney is also an affiliated faculty member in the Department of African and African American Studies at Rutgers–Newark.

This event will be moderated by Tyhisha Henry NCAS’02, assistant director of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging, Kent Place School.
