When discussing Black Power in DC, some of the most well-known activists include Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael), Marion Barry, Walter Fauntroy, Julius Hobson, and more. Black women were also instrumental to the movement, both in DC and more widely. Historian and doctoral student at American University Donelle Boose highlights some of these women and brings their stories to the forefront in “The Self Determined Podcast.” Prof. D. Boose will host a live conversation with Sister Koko about her experiences from the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements to Black Lives Matter today. Audience members will get an introduction to “The Self Determined Podcast,” to hear her stories, learn their wisdom, and have an opportunity to respond and ask questions. Since this is a live taping, all who register and attend consent to having their voices, questions, and comments published online without review as part of the podcast.
The program is free, registration is required. Registration ends September 21 at 11:59 pm.
