Join University of Maine Alumni Association for an honest, unscripted kitchen-table conversation among three generations of inspiring Maine-based Black feminist activists, academics, and community builders. Coming together to seek the roots and trace the branches of Black feminism in Maine, panelists will interweave themes of Black women’s history, solidarity, and connections to nature, science, environmental and social justice movements, creativity, and the arts.
This webinar celebrates Black feminism as an ongoing, multi-faceted, transformative force in the speakers’ lives, as well as in communities across the United States and right here in Maine.
The conversation will be facilitated by Laren Babb who pursued a graduate degree in chemistry from the University of Maine. Around the table will be: Dr. Samaa Abdurraqib, Associate Director, Maine Humanities Council; Dr. Lori Banks, Assistant Professor of Biology, Bates College; Dr. Leslie Hill, Professor Emerita of Politics, Bates College; Amara Ifeji, Director of Youth Engagement and Policy, Maine Environmental Association and National Geographic Young Explorer; and Kosi Ifeji, Bangor High School student and Youth Hub Coordinator, Maine Environmental Education Association.
The event is made possible with generous support from the Alton ’38 and Adelaide Hamm Campus Activity Fund.
