Author Constance White will join Dr. Valerie Steele to discuss the influence of black style on today’s fashion vernacular, drawing on striking images of trendsetters from Josephine Baker to Michelle Obama, Rihanna, and Pharrell Williams. White’s book, How to Slay, is one of the few surveys of black style and fashion ever published.

A book signing will follow the presentation.
