In the debut short story collection, Training School for Negro Girls, black girls and women learn the rules of love, power, and respectability—and how to break them—in the shifting landscape of Washington DC. Author Camille Acker reads excerpts from her book that deftly explores the dynamics of race, gender, and class, and signs copies following the presentation.
