Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture Series: "The Maid Narratives: A Presentation for Black History Month"

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 -
12:30 pm to 1:20 pm

Katherine van Wormer, 2012-2013 Distinguished Scholar and professor, Department of Social Work, will present “The Maid Narratives: A Presentation for Black History Month." A co-author shares her experiences in researching and writing a book that is constructed around stories of women of the Great Migration, most from Waterloo, Iowa, who worked as domestic servants in Mississippi. The purpose in writing the book was to uncover little-known facts about mistress-maid relationships in the Jim Crow South. The stories were amazing but the challenges many in bringing this history to light.
