Join me on Wednesday, June 22 for a intimate discussion on the societal impact of Black women in America. Three outstanding African American female scholars explain their research and current work about the mysticism, healing, and struggles of black women throughout history.
CURVED ROOTS: A Historical Exploration of Beyoncé’s LEMONADE and Black Women in America. Curved Roots is a community conversation that focuses on the intersection of popular culture and black women.
Using Beyonce’s recent visual album LEMONADE as a frame, three women unite the past with the present to explain their work in food justice, community healing, labor rights, and economic liberation. As an open discussion, all present have the opportunity to share their thoughts, questions and ideas.
