EVETTE DIONNE: Lifting as We Climb
February 1 @ 3:00 pm – 4:15 pm EST
In her talk, Evette Dionne looks at the history of Black women’s civic engagement—from abolition until the present—to explore the systemic barriers that have prevented Black women from fully participating in America’s democracy. You will learn about: The forgotten history of Black female activists who most of us have never heard of; how to apply the lessons learned from these significant Black women into your activism; and the tiny steps we can all take that lead to bigger rewards.
