African and African American Studies and Women and Gender Studies present
the 2012 Sojourner Truth Lecture with two upcoming events. On Wednesday
February 29th, 2012, as a preface to the actual lecture the next day, there
will be a film screening of "Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968"
in the Johnson Center Cinema at 7:00PM. Filmmaker, activist, and writer Judy
F. Richardson will be present to discuss the film.
On Thursday March 1st, 2012 at 3:00PM in Mason Hall Room D3 A&B, the
Sojourner Truth Lecture will be delivered with a dialogue between
Richardson, and writer and activist, Betty G. Robinson. Both women are
former members of the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), and
will share their experiences as women during the Civil Rights Movement.
Associate professor of History& Art History, Jennifer Ritterhouse, will
moderate the discussion. The lecture will be followed by a book signing and
reception in the atrium of Mason Hall.
Please join us for one or both events, and by all means share this
