Summer Engagement: Women / Film
Hi everyone! My name is Jaqui Hale, I recently graduated from UMass Amherst with a degree in Public Health and a Certificate in Spanish and Health. I was a member of the Race and the American Story seminar in my final semester of my undergraduate career, and felt that what we were learning in the course sparked a lot of conversations with myself, but also with fellow classmates, and wanted to continue the conversation this summer. I am currently a first semester nursing student at the MGH Institute of Health Professions in Boston, Massachusetts.
Feminism and Race in America
Participants will relearn and redefine what feminism means to them throughout a 3 session conversation on feminism and race. 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.
