Visions of the Future: Voting, Activism, and Art


From Shirley Chisholm to Michelle Obama and beyond, black women and politics have been inextricably intertwined. And now, as more minority women enter and win local races, the black female voting block is proving its importance. As we move toward this year’s presidential election, how will black women keep their seat at the table and engage with politics?  Please join us for a lively panel with women of color who will discuss their specific involvement with politics through participation, activism, and art.
