Join us for a meaningful discussion about the legacy of women’s suffrage and today’s feminist movement through the lens of Black women. Through this conversation, we will unpack the history of feminism while highlighting the importance on intersectionality in the future of the movement.

From the disparate impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in communities across the nation to vigilant protests against systemic racism, current history has shown we are far from achieving equity. Trying to navigate and confront a multitude of injustices can be overwhelming. Black feminism provides a prospective through which we can better understand one another and move towards a greater opportunity for justice.

Panelists include:

  • Djanna Hill, Chairperson of the Department of Community and Social Justice Studies and Professor of teacher education at William Paterson University
  • Treva Lindsey, Associate Professor of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at The Ohio State University
  • Dr. Carolette Norwood, Associate Professor and Assistant Department Head, Director of the Social Justice Certificate, Department of Women’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies at the University of Cincinnati
