Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower (2013)
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.
Where you complete your advanced degree matters. The UWM campus welcomes you to attend our Graduate School Open House. This is the perfect opportunity for you to meet the faculty, staff, and other prospective graduate students who will help shape your graduate school experience. We look forward to seeing you.
For questions, more information, or requests for accommodation, please contact: Erin Fox (E-mail, 229-6569).
