  • On Tuesday, January 25 at 12:30 pm, Maison Francaise presents New Utopias: Can We Heal the Wounds of the Past? The virtual panel discussing the degree to which the legacy of prejudice and discrimination continues to shape political institutions and power relations today, and the efforts aimed at reconciling with the past. How do we come to terms with this shared violent past, what are the effects of experiencing it? How do we move foward?
  • On Tuesday, January 25 at 6 pm is Barnard College’s Lewis-Ezekoye Distinguished Lecture in Africana Studies: Black Feminism in Space. Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein discusses her research and advocacy for marginalized people in physics and astronomy.

Black feminism provides a framework for thinking about living in good relations with each other on earth’s surface and beyond.
