Please register to attend the Zoom webinar.

Learn from Historian, Dr. Nishani Frazier, and Milwaukee activist, Dynasty Ceasar, about the ways Black womxn have and continue to organize for justice and freedom. Local communications leader, Vivian King, will moderate a discussion connecting the panel’s remarks to the current Movement for Black Lives.

Dr. Nishani Frazier, Associate Professor of American Studies and History at University of Kansas, will share how the Congress of Racial Equity (CORE) and three Black Womxn (Pauli Murray, Ella Baker, and Ruth Turner) used nonviolence and Gandhian Satyagraha in the 1960s Freedom Movements.
