Harriet Tubman and Black women's electoral strength
Mar 27, 2019
An ensemble cast stages a performance that explores the life and legacy of Harriet Tubman—an early 20th-century civic organizer and political activist—through music, dance, and drumming. The performance is followed by a panel exploring the political implications of Tubman’s profound legacy. Among other topics, the panel of political analysts and theorists discuss how Tubman’s story illustrates the powerful and lasting consequences of having black women as a driving force in the fight for equality and justice. Panelists: Barbara Arnwine, Alicia Garza, Nia-Malika Henderson, and California State Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager-Dove. Moderated by Kimberlé Crenshaw.
