Description:

Join the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy for the next installment of the Anti-Racism in Thought and Action Speaker and Discussion Series:

Feminist theory has been a powerful force for social change in the modern world. Please join us for a conversation between Professor Nadia Brown (Purdue University) and Professor Mirya Holman (Tulane University) about the contributions of feminist theory to antiracist thought and praxis in the United States. They will also discuss how the emergence of distinctive feminist politics among women of color has had a transformative impact on recent antiracist social movements.

Two members of the Change Makers Review Committee, Steven Adams and Stefanie Hicks, have partnered with Dr. Alvin Tillery in the Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy to curate the Anti-Racism in Thought and Action Speaker and Discussion Series during the 2020-21 academic year. Scholars from a variety of disciplines will share research that provides transformative insights about the multiple crises of race we navigate in the United States. Each lecture will be followed by an interactive discussion or activity to catalyze meaningful reflection and action directed toward creating an anti-racist campus. The Office of Human Resources is sponsoring this series and invite all Northwestern Faculty and Staff to participate.
