This 75-minute film, directed by Roxana Walker-Canton, examines the intersection of race, class and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. Through their diverse narratives, from girlhood to the present, black women from different disciplines share experiences that have shaped them, including segregated schooling as children, and the trials, disappointments and triumphs encountered in academia.
This event is part of a bi-weekly brown bag series at UWM showcasing and discussing issues related to women, multiculturalism, and diversity. Sponsored by the UWM Black Cultural Center, UWM Union Sociocultural Programming, and the UWM Women’s Resource Center. We invite graduate students across disciplines to join us for this film screening and dialogue about race, class, and gender in the academy.
