Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, The 11th Annual Writer in Residence Lecture featuring Allyson Hobbs has been cancelled. We apologize for any inconvenience. In this talk, Hobbs argues that the national fraternity of American motorists excluded African Americans during the early to mid-20th century despite the ostensibly democratic nature of the “open road.” Providing a textured account of the emotional lives of black drivers including the sense of pride, the seduction, and the exhilaration that owning a car offered, this talk also considers the fears and anxieties that arose once African Americans motorists got behind the wheel.
