Black Women's Lives
Theory and Practice Matter
City University of New York
This seminar places African American women at the center of U.S civil rights movement history, demonstrating how their contributions helped to redefine the nature of leadership for social change and social inclusion. These women were the forerunners to black-feminism and intersectional feminist analysis of race, gender, and class.

As one of the founders of Open Society Institute’s International Women’s Program, she served for ten years as its Director of Programs. Her research interests focus on the politics of memory for social change movements, particularly intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, and memory.
