Delores Walters, Women’s Resistance: What the Legacy of Margaret Garner Teaches Us Today
Professor Delores Walters will place African American women’s escapes from enslavement into historical context, including the story of Margaret Garner and its role in providing another perspective on women and violence. We will consider the story’s impact on people today: in transforming relations between others, including those of different racial, ethnic, class, age, sexual orientation, religious, etc. backgrounds and in addressing domestic violence. Professor Walters will highlight chapters in her newly published book, Gendered Resistance, and provide insight into negotiating the barriers to self-authorship and social change.
