Each year at Mason, Women and Gender Studies and African and African American Studies takes the lead in co-sponsoring the Sojourner Truth Lecture Series during the spring in honor of Black History and Women’s History months. In the past, our speakers have included Ntosake Shange, Donna Brazile, bell hooks, Anita Hill, Patricia Hill Collins, Dorothy Roberts, Nekima Levy-Pounds, Janet Mock and other notable women. It is one of our signature events during the spring semester. We design the Sojourner Truth lecture to be a rich and varied experience and thus we construct the speaker's visit around the lecture but also include a smaller event, such as a seminar with students or a conversation among women across racial/ethnic backgrounds.
This year we will be featuring two speakers: Dr. Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor and Dr. Robin M. Boylorn who are scholars, activists, and award-winning authors.
Co-sponsors: Women and Gender Studies, African and African American Studies, Diversity, Invlusion and Multicultural Education and LGBTQ Resources, American Revolution, University Life, Higher Education, and Interdisciplinary Curriculum Collaborative
