Africana-Melanated Womanism and The  King Connection”

A key cornerstone of Dr. Martin Luther King’s leadership in the Civil Rights Movement is the collective struggle against racial dominance in America, later to include eradicating race, class and gender oppression worldwide.  This same mission embodies the essence of a global concept for women of color, Africana-Melanated Womanism. True to the family-centered struggle of men, women and children everywhere, its primary goal is to bring joy and security via total equity for all.  The interconnected world family, then, committed to a harmonious world, represents the making of a just society for all humankind.

Prolific professor, author, theorist, producer and film writer, Dr. Clenora Hudson-Weems is Professor of English at University of Missouri.  Join us for this important discussion!
