Newcomb Film Series: Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower
Thursday, February 18, 6pm
Freeman Auditorium, Woldenberg Art Center
This film examines the intersection of race, class, and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. Though more than 100 years have passed since the doors to higher education opened for Black women, their numbers as faculty members are woefully low and for many still, the image of Black women as intellectuals is incomprehensible.
