with Ericka Huggins
Thursday, November 17,
Join us for a conversation with Ericka Huggins—human rights activist, Black Panther leader, educator, poet, and former political prisoner.
The conversation, moderated by Professor Mark Sanders, director of Notre Dame’s Initiative on Race and Resilience, will be followed by a reception and book signing with Huggins for her new book Comrade Sisters: Women of the Black Panther Party. In Comrade Sisters, Huggin's remarkable story joins with those of the many women who formed the backbone of the Party. Copies will be available for purchase. Students in attendance will have the chance to win a signed copy.
This event is held in conjunction with the current temporary installation Kevin Beasley—Chair of the Ministers of Defense. Huggins’s activism will provide a specific lens through which to explore themes Beasley probes in his installation.
This event is co-sponsored by the Klau Institute for Civil & Human Rights; Center for Social Concerns; Department of Africana Studies; Department of American Studies; Department of Education, Schooling, and Society; Initiative on Race and Resilience; and Transformational Leaders Program.
