Women’s History Month: Conversations For Change (Maryland Public Television) – VIRTUAL

March 31, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In celebration of Women’s History Month, in collaboration with Morgan State University and University of Maryland Global Campus, Maryland Public Television (MPT) invites you to join us for a special event honoring the legacy of Black women suffragists and their impact on the leaders of today — leaders such as former Georgia State Representative Stacey Abrams, whose voter registration efforts directly impacted the election of Kamala Harris, the nation’s first woman of color serving as our nation’s Vice President.

The screening will include a presentation of “The Ongoing Fight,” a co-production of American Experience and Retro Report, which presents the contributions of Black women in the suffrage movement and where that movement is today. A panel discussion follows the video.

Panelists include:

  • Moderator: Dr. Karsonya “Kaye” Wise Whitehead, host of “Today With Dr. Kaye” on WEAA; founder of the Karson Institute for Race, Peace & Social Justice and associate professor of Communication and African American Studies in the Department of Communication at Loyola University Maryland
  • Dr. Damon Freeman, director of the History and African American Studies Program at University of Maryland Global Campus; Morgan State University alumnus
  • Dr. Patricia Williams-Lessane, associate vice president for Academic Affairs, Morgan State University
  • Donna Edwards, former U.S. representative for Maryland’s 4th congressional district (2008-17)
  • Gloria J. Browne-Marshall, Esq., professor of Constitutional Law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY)
