Free Food For Thought - Fall 2013
Solidarity of Social Justice: Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall
How Does it Feel to be a Problem? - A Lecture by Mandy Carter
Using DuBois’ framework of double consciousness from the Soul’s of Black Folk (1903), Mandy Carter will share insight on the complexity of our multi-layered identities. As a black lesbian woman, Mandy understands the pluralism that exists between these two identities and will challenge participants to think critically about their own identity intersections.
The Free Food For Thought fall 2013 series focuses on the commonalities and differences that exist between these three events that aided in the shift from single occurrences to social movements for change. Conversations will focus on the intersection of social identities of the people involved in each of these movements. We will examine and discuss how Seneca Falls, Selma, and Stonewall created a foundation for current global movements for justice and equality.
