Episode No. 577 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a holiday weekend clips episode featuring author Glenda Elizabeth Gilmore.
Gilmore is the author of “Romare Bearden in the Homeland of His Imagination,” which was just published by the University of North Carolina Press. The book examines how Bearden’s address of his native South — he was born and was initially raised in the Charlotte, NC area before his family was effectively forced to leave the South — was informed by the vagaries of memory and even imagination. Gilmore is the Peter V. & C. Vann Woodward Professor Emerita of History at Yale University. Her previous books include “Gender and Jim Crow: Women and the Politics of White Supremacy in North Carolina, 1896-1920,” and “Defying Dixie: The Radical Roots of Civil Rights, 1919-1950.” Indiebound and Amazon offer “Bearden” for $26-40.
