Book Launch: Tanisha C. Ford presents Dressed in Dreams: A Black Girl’s Love Letter to the Power of Fashion
In conversation with Brittney Cooper
Reception to follow
Greenlight hosts author and fashionista Tanisha C. Ford for the launch of her stylish new memoir. Dressed in Dreams offers a different narrative than stories set in New York or Los Angeles, following Ford as she learned to break the mold and find her own style in the Midwestern town of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Ford seamlessly blends this story of her own lifelong fashion revolution with an examination of black style and hip hop culture. Joining her in conversation is Brittney Cooper, author of the critically-acclaimed Eloquent Rage: A Black Woman Discovers her Superpowers. A wine reception follows to celebrate the launch of Dressed in Dreams.
