Ousmane Power-Greene, professor of history and program director of Africana Studies at Clark, joins us to talk about his new historical fiction novel “The Confessions of Matthew Strong.” A story of race and redemption, the book follows Allie Douglass as she is kidnapped by a white supremacist.

Power-Greene tells us about the inspiration for this novel and how he’d like Allie’s character to live on after readers put down the book. “The Confessions of Matthew Strong,” published by Other Press/Random House, will be available next month.

Current students and alumni can hear more from Power-Green and fellow Clark faculty during a roundtable event at noon on Wednesday Nov. 2. Attend in-person at Dana Commons on campus or via Zoom.
