A Ratchet Redefining Black Womanhood
August 20, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am EDT
Much discussion and analysis has ensued regarding whether Joe Biden will or should choose a Black woman as his running mate. In response to the racist and sexist rhetoric being spewed, the Justice Roundtable’s Racial Justice Working Group is hosting a discussion on Thursday, August 20 at 1:00 p.m. ET on the power of black women as they deal with racism, sexism micro aggressions and everything in between.We are pleased to have Dr. Michelle Meggs, Executive Director of the Women + Girls Research Alliance at UNC Charlotte present on howBlack women are resisting and reshaping definitions of their humanity and womanhood using a framework of ratchetness? We will talk about how the power of agency, self-definition, and self-determination places the terms of definition solely in the hands of the women who refuse to be defined outside of themselves. The discussion will be moderated by Racial Justice Working Group Co-Chairs. Nkechi Taifa, Justice Roundtable Convener and Founder & Principal of the Taifa Group and Angelyn C. Frazer-Giles, Executive Director of the National Network for Justice.
