"Those Purple Hands Really Intrigue Me": Beverly Jenkins Indigo. Master Class led by Dr. Margo Hendricks

The aim of this master class is to offer a pedagogical and scholarly approach to reading and teaching Black Romance fiction, specifically, historical Black romance novels. What this class will offer is a model, using Indigo as the class text, for teaching the literariness of novel, its continuity with the history of the romance genre, and the importance of reassessing the teaching of and writing about Black romance, and the romance genre in general. What the course will offer Black romance readers, scholars, and teachers is a critical approach easily adapted to anti-racist pedagogy and scholarly writing about romance.
