In this discussion speakers will draw from their field specific insights to discuss Black women's experiences in the United States. Leveraging contemporary and historical examples, they will offer frameworks for understanding structural bias, harassment, and violence against Black women and contemplate opportunities to disrupt it. The Brown School is pleased to co-sponsor this program with the Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity and Equity.
