RACISM & GENDER: EXPLORING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BLACK AND WHITE WOMEN 

In honor of Juneteeth and to celebration the new federal holiday, we are replaying the Race & Gender discussions we had in 2020.  We are proud of the fact that our branch was responsible for racially integrating AAUW in 1954, thanks to the leadership of Alice Cole and Mary Church Terrell. The decision split the branch in two and probably other branches as well, but it made the AAUW a leader in racial equality as well as gender equality. As the result, our board approved the Race and Gender discussions that took place between June and November 2020.  Watch the recordings.
