Sotterley Presents: People & Perspectives with Caitlyn Hunter

March 20 @ 7:00 pm

March 20, 2024 – Caitlyn Hunter joins Historic Sotterley to discuss her book, “Power in the Tongue”, which fuses history and folktales to show Black perseverance across centuries. Her book is a hybrid of memoir and fiction which digs into the history of herself and her audience to show that the stories we tell are just as important as the facts. ​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​

 

Caitlyn Hunter was the inaugural Emerging Black Artist in Residence at Chatham University (2021-2022). She is a doctoral candidate at Duquesne University where she researches African American literature and Black Food studies. She is currently writing both a collection of short stories and a culinary memoir around her maternal ancestry. Her first book, Power in the Tongue (Tolsun Books) debuted in 2022. Her work appears in Midnight & Indigo, Lost Balloon, and elsewhere. She is currently an Assistant Professor of English at the College of Southern Maryland.
