The Library District and the Bardavon Present: Imani Perry

June 19, 2022
5:00 p.m.
The Bardavon 1869 Opera House 35 Market Street Poughkeepsie, NY

Imani Perry is an award-winning author, interdisciplinary scholar, and the Hughes Rogers Professor of African American Students at Princeton University. In her new book South to America, the author seeks to change how people view the American South and, thus, the country’s history as a whole.

Imani Perry’s writing and scholarship primarily focuses on the history of Black thought, art, and imagination crafted in response to, and resistance against, the social, political and legal realities of domination in the West.

Books will be available to purchase before and after the presentation. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing in the Bardavon lobby.

Free general admission tickets (limit of 2 tickets per person) are available for pickup at: Bardavon Box Office, Adriance Memorial Library, Boardman Road Branch Library, or Sadie Peterson Delaney African Roots Branch Library.

Please note: the Bardavon’s COVID-19 protocols require that attendees must wear masks at all times, regardless of vaccination status, except when eating and drinking. For more details on the Bardavon’s policies, visit
