Feminism and Race in America Part 2

July 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

by Jacqueline Hale

Participants will relearn and redefine what feminism means to them throughout a 3 session conversation on feminism and race. In the first session, we will discuss our experiences with feminism and race through the lens of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TED talk on “How To Be A Feminist.” We will then look at powerful women in the music industry (Taylor Swift and Beyoncé), and look at the similarities and differences in their careers and public perceptions due to their race and sex. Finally, we will look at women through the male gaze, by watching two of Spike Lee’s films and analyzing how he portrays women. These conversations will hopefully aid us to getting a greater understanding of female and male perceptions of femininity, as well as try to grasp the understanding of the experience of black and white women in the media.

Attendees are expected to have watched these titles:
“Homecoming” by Beyonce https://www.netflix.com/title/81013626
