Description

Exploring African American women as a potent force within American politics, culture, and society, this new series serves as a platform where visionary black female leaders can discuss their work and how the country might move forward in these complicated times. We begin with higher education, welcoming two high-profile college presidents—Valerie Smith of Swarthmore and Karol Mason of John Jay—for the first of these important dialogues. Moderated by Robert Reid-Pharr, distinguished professor of English at the GC and director of the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean.
 
Presented with the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean.
