 Carolivia Herron Biography

A huge controversy occurred when a white teacher in Brooklyn, New York, was verbally accosted by members of the African American community for reading and sharing Ms. Herron's book with her class of African American and Hispanic children.

It was only after the media created a circus that the parents realized that Nappy Hair was a celebration of heritage. Nappy Hair, written in call and response style, enables young people to be active participants in living poetry.

In Ms. Herron newest book- "Always an Olivia" a children's book that tells the history of her African and Jewish roots she tells her fasinating story of discovery.  In her programs she draws from her own experiences as an African American Jewish woman who speaks to the large issues of racism, sexism and first amendment issues. Her program will also focus on African American epic and oral poetry, in context to European and Hebraic epic poetry (comparing Nappy Hair to the Iliad, Odyssey, Divine Comedy , Paradise Lost as well as the Bible etc.) as well as Rap Music and its continuum of the oral/epic tradition.

Ms. Herron has spent most of her professional career at Harvard University as a professor and as a Visiting Scholar (African American Studies, Divinity School, School of Education, electronic education), she has also had a professorial appointment at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, and has had additional visiting scholar and or professor positions at Brandeis University, Hebrew College, Brookline, MA, Carlton College, Congo, Brazzaville, and the Republic of Congo. Her fellowships include: Fulbright Fellowship to Mexico, Bunting Fellow of Radcliffe College, NEH Fellowship in Curriculum Development in African American Studies.
