Danielle McGuire At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance

The Carney Latin American Solidarity Archive and African American Studies Program at University of Detroit Mercy is hosting speaker Dr. Danielle McGuire on Thursday, Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. The talk will take place in the School of Architecture building on the McNichols campus.

McGuire will be discuss her book, "At the Dark End of the Street: Black Women, Rape, and Resistance,” inspired by Rosa Parks and the civil rights movement. The book begins by describing events and people from our past, and challenges in the Detroit leader’s life that led to such a spectacular movement for the world. McGuire will also talk about how social class and sexual violence affected the lives of so many people in such difficult times. “At the Dark End of the Street “ acknowledges that women were treated differently at that time and how they endured through the stress and violence of the day.

This event is co-sponsored by UDM’s Women and Gender Studies and African American Studies Programs.

This is a free event and is open to the public. For more information, please contact CLASA Director Dr. Gail Presbey 313-993-1124 or at
