Join us as Dr. Joy James explores rebellion against police violence by women, such as Erica Garner, who are keeping life going in the midst of war. Dr. James will also reflect on the afterlife of femicide and racism. She is author of Resisting State Violence, Transcending the Talented Tenth, Seeking the 'Beloved Community': A Feminist Race Reader and other titles.

Dr. Joy James is an Ebenezer Fitch Professor of Humanities in the Africana Studies department at Williams College. She specializes in topics such as black feminism, political science, and race and incarceration.

Lunch will be provided. RSVP by Nov 1, 2019.
