Join us for this Black feminism webinar!
WHEN: Wednesday December 1, 2021
TIME: 6:00 p.m.
Join us for an honest, unscripted kitchen-table conversation among three generations of inspiring Maine-based Black feminist activists, academics, and community builders. Coming together to seek the roots and trace the branches of Black feminism in Maine, panelists will interweave themes of Black women’s history, solidarity, and connections to nature, science, environmental, and social justice movements, creativity, and the arts.
The conversation will be facilitated by Laren Babb who pursued a graduate degree in chemistry from the University of Maine. Around the table will be: Dr. Samaa Abdurraqiib, Associate Director, Maine Humanities Council; Dr. Lori Banks, Assistant Professor of Biology, Bates College; Dr. Leslie Hill, Professor of Political Science, Bates College; Amara Ifeji, Director of Youth Engagement and Policy, Maine Environmental Association and National Geographic Younr Explorer; and Kosi Ifeji, Bangor High School student and Youth Hub Coordinator, Maine Environmental Education Association.
