Chat in the Stacks: Black Girls -- Exploding the Myth
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 | 2:30 pm
For more than seven years running, the Libraries and the Faculty Senate Committee on the Status of Faculty of Color have co-hosted an engaging series of panels on timely topics, featuring faculty from across the university.
Join us for a round table discussion between faculty women of color and student leaders on the myths and stereotypes that abound in the public discourse about Black women. There is a history to the stereotypes of Black women faced daily and, as we have seen with the Sandra Bland incident, there is a danger to them. Formatted as a "chat" between faculty and some of their students, this event aims to opens the discussion to the larger campus community.
