Alumni College 2021
While Black feminism is frequently imagined as the paradigmatic ideological, political, and everyday practice through which social justice might be achieved, “justice” is often figured and treated as dangerous, problematic and risky in the hands of Black women. Professors Hortense Spillers, PhD ’74, an American literary critic, Black feminist scholar and the Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt Professor at Vanderbilt University, and Shoniqua Roach, assistant professor of African and African American Studies and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies will explore this paradox, among others, through an intimate conversation about past, present and future possibilities for Black Women, Black Feminism and Justice.
This event is co-sponsored by the Alumni of Color Network.
