What: Race and the Women’s Movement
When: Saturday, March 9, 2019 at 10 AM – 12 PM
Where: Kingston Library (55 Franklin St, Kingston, New York 12401)
Description: How has the women’s movement historically treated race? And how can we inform current activism differently?
Each panelist will speak about their area of expertise as it relates to race and the women’s movement. Through short presentations of their work, or discussion of their experience, we’ll contextualize current conversations around the women’s movement and intersectional feminism, and discuss contemporary questions about unity. Followed by Q&A with the audience.
