Time: 3:30 pm  to  4:30 pm

University of Texas professor Ashley Farmer (History and African and African Diaspora Studies) will discuss her 2017 book, Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era. Farmer examines black women’s political, social, and cultural engagement with Black Power ideals and organizations. Complicating the assumption that sexism relegated black women to the margins of the movement, Farmer demonstrates how female activists fought for more inclusive understandings of Black Power and social justice by developing new ideas about black womanhood.

The event is sponsored by the Institute for Historical Studies in the Department of History. More information online. RSVP to
