RIVERSIDE, Calif. ( -- Daniel E. Walker, the author of “No More, No More: Slavery and Cultural Resistance in Havana and New Orleans,” will sign books at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 7 at The Village Bookstore, 1299 University Ave., Suite 101, Riverside.

The event is co-sponsored by UC Riverside’s Department of Ethnic Studies and the Black Voice News.

In this book, published by the University of Minnesota Press, Walker explores how people of African descent in Havana and New Orleans resisted the culture of slavery in the 19th century, using their own cultural beliefs to withstand the dehumanizing effects of oppression. ‘No More, No More’ crosses disciplinary boundaries and explains the economic, social, cultural, and demographic operations at work and the wide-scale efforts at cultural resistance embodied in public performances.

Walker is an independent scholar and founding director of both the Center for History, Media and the Arts, and the Gospel Music History Project Center for Public History and the Arts, a division of the Black Voice Foundation. His articles have appeared in CLA Journal, Griot, Western Journal of Black Studies, and Journal of Caribbean History. Walker also is the founder of Leadership Excellence, a non-profit organization that annually placed over 95% of its high school participants in accredited colleges and universities. He earned his Ph.D. with distinction from the University of Houston, in Latin American and African American History. He has given hundreds of keynote addresses throughout the United States.
