Gender and #BlackLivesMatter: Lessons Learned from a History of Struggle (Graduate Colloquium lecture)

  • Northern Illinois University DeKalb, IL USA (map)

Dr. Marcia Chatelain’s lecture will examine the ways that black freedom struggles from the 1950s to the present have ignored the fundamental importance of gender to every aspect of social movements, from leadership to strategy. This talk will highlight the ways that #BlackLivesMatter is articulating a new vision of racial and economic justice that practices and models gendered consciousness. Sponsors: Center for the Study of Women, Gender & Sexuality and the Graduate Colloquium Committee
