Join the Pembroke Center on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at noon for the 2021 Elizabeth Munves Sherman '77, P'06 P'09 Lecture in Gender and Sexuality Studies with Keisha-Khan Y. Perry, Associate Professor of Africana Studies at Brown.

Register here for this virtual lecture.

As a feminist scholar of the Black diaspora, Professor Perry  takes seriously the theoretical and methodological call that we return to the urgent material issues such as land, housing, and public education that concern Black women and that informed Black feminist thought in the first place. In this presentation, Professor Perry focuses on Black women as key political thinkers and protagonists, centering their critical knowledge on dispossession, policing and other related forms of urban violence. Drawing from two decades of ethnographic and archival research, she illustrates the creative ways grassroots activists are mobilizing against forced displacements and to secure the basic human right to dignified housing.
