On Tuesday, October 26 at 2:30 pm EST, join Dean Douglas as she speaks with Dr. Brittney Cooper, Associate Professor at Rutgers University and co-editor of The Crunk Feminist Collection (The Feminist Press 2017). Dr. Cooper is the author of Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women (University of Illinois Press, May 2017) and Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower (St. Martin’s, February 2018). As one of the key themes found throughout The 1619 Project is the importance of telling an accurate and truthful account of American history, this conversation will focus on issues of identity and gender politics, specifically around issues facing Black women.
Just Conversations during the fall semester will dive deeper into the essays and themes discussed in our fall community read, The 1619 Project from the New York Times.
EDS at Union’s Facebook Live series Just Conversations with Kelly Brown Douglas explores the racialized inequities intrinsic to our nation and our collective responsibility to create a more just future.
These 30-minute conversations featured on the EDS at Union Facebook page will invite activists and religious, political, and thought leaders to discuss their work being champions for justice. Videos are also available on the Union YouTube Page.
