Misogynoir and Sustaining AntiBlackness
Friday, April 1, 2022
noon - 1 p.m.
Please join the Serie Center for “Misogynoir and Sustaining AntiBlackness.” Ebony Adedayo (Serie Center) will explore the oppression of Black women in relation to the construction of racism in the United States. Tracing incidents of harm from slavery to the present, Ebony will argue that white supremacy is upheld by the hatred of Black women who are descendants of African slaves. If academia is truly committed to antiracist pedagogy, we need to have a more robust analysis of how race is gendered. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of the Integrated Ecosystem of Support (IES), a model constructed to advocate for a politics of care to support Black women in the academy as students, faculty, and staff. An email with the link to join the event will be sent via swap-news. All faculty and staff are welcome.
