Dr Evelyn Simien, Associate professor of Political Science at the University of Connecticut, jointly appointed with the Africana Studies Institute, and Associate Editor of Polity (the Journal of the Northeastern Political Science Association), renders tribute and gives voice to the women of the Civil Rights Movement. Dr Simien gives us a deeper understanding of interlocking systems of oppression—race and sexism— experienced by forgotten heroines of the Civil Rights Movement who similarly risked their lives and reputations for equality and justice before the law.

The Journey of a Brown Girl (JoBG) is an Experimental Theatre Movement, that seeks to use the power of narrative and storytelling to engage audiences in deep reflection around the struggles and triumphs of the human spirit through the lens of the Filipina experience. This is a story, that speaks to diverse communities on empowerment of self and community, inspiring audiences and performers to look deep within themselves for truth beyond Master’s Narratives- to speak on their own stories of becoming. The Journey of a Brown Girl seeks to break that mold and expose the true nature of our sisters – as powerful leaders, healers, visionaries, teachers, and warriors of our culture and communities.
This event is free and open to the community. Paid parking is available at the NJCU West Side Parking Lot 3A (Flat rate $7 or $4 with NJCU ID)
