Past, Present and Future: Women of Color Redefining Culture and Community

March 15, 2019, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Past, Present and Future: Women of Color Redefining Culture and Community

Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Auditorium (Room N101), Sheila C. Johnson Design Center

General Public 

During the panel event,  we hope to engage in a dialogue with leading women of color who are currently pushing the cultural responsibility in their professional careers as writers, community organizers and creative entrepreneurs. 

At the forefront of the preservation of culture, women of color have always and continue to shape the importance of community. Through building representation in mainstream media, to shifting cultural spaces in local communities, women of color are dominating this radical role. Perpetually, this sense of responsibility come with its challenges with the emergence of social media and networking. It is important we continue to push social engagement through community organizing, building networks in industries that are shaping the narratives of culture, fashion and art and this particular group of women of color are doing just that.

In celebration of this Women’s History Month, we want to highlight the contributions women of color have made for culture, history and society in the past, present and the next generation of women. #TheFutureisFemale
