When We Do See Color: Ending Global Racism, Part 1

Part 1: And Many of Us Are Brave Abroad.  Building on the title of the Black Feminist classic, All the Women Are White, All the Blacks Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave, in this session we consider cross-cultural intersections of race, class and gender in education abroad.  What are some of the ways in which women of color confront and dismantle global racism through international education?  How do gender and sexuality impact how we view movement, agency and opportunity with regard to education abroad? How do we use our agency in relation to race, class and gender to end global racism?  We will be joined by world renowned feminist scholar-activists, Beverly Guy Sheftall, Founding Director of the Women’s Research and Resource Center at Spelman College, and Siga Fatima Jagne Jallow, Commissioner of Social and Women’s Affaris for the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
