2024 Henry Cohen Lecture Series: Wake Up America

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

In 1968, civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer called for Americans to “wake up” if they wanted to “make democracy a reality.” Today, as Black communities continue to face challenges built on centuries of discrimination, Hamer’s plea is increasingly urgent.

Join us for a panel discussion of Dr. Keisha N. Blain’s new book, Wake Up America: Black Women on the Future of Democracy, and the steps we can take to build a truly inclusive democracy. Dr. Blain’s exhilarating anthology of original essays brings together the voices of major progressive Black women politicians, grassroots activists, and intellectuals to offer critical insights on how we can create a more equitable political future.
