Author, educator, and public school reformer Dr. C. L. Kennedy’s memoir, One Hundred Pieces of Sun, charts a trajectory from her childhood in the Jim Crow Alabama of the 1950s and a not-exactly-equal-rights city in the Rust-Belt, to Sarah Lawrence College. The book ends with her junior year abroad at the University of Ghana, followed by travels through Africa using only local transportation. (Yes, her mother threw a fit when she first told her about her plans.) One Hundred Pieces of Sun is infused with the author’s enthusiasm for life and delivers a powerful, inspiring message: Have faith in God and yourself, be brave, and follow your dreams!
On Friday, February 24 at 12:00 in RH 105, Dr. Kennedy will present a reading and discussion of her book. A pizza lunch will be served. RSVP by clicking “going” on our Facebook event page or by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
