Transracial Adoptee Panel

Transracial adoption is a topic that has been debated for many years, especially as it pertains to white parents raising children of color. 

Hear the important and unique perspectives of three transracial adoptees: Johanna Heineman-Pieper, Felicia Carlson and Andrea Clark-Johnson. 

This event is free and open to the community. Each panelist will share information about their individual history and experiences growing up as a transracial adoptee. We will also discuss strategies that their white parents did that were helpful in their racial identity development as well as circumstances that hindered their racial identity development. This event will focus on the experiences and truths of the panelists. 

There will be time for Q&A and reflections.

Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights

Film Screening and Discussion

The Washburn Heritage Room, Edgewood College: March 27, 2017 at 10am-12pm

A film by Nevline Nnaji, USA, 2013, 81 minutes

Where do black women activists fit into the epochal struggles for equality and liberation during the 1960s and 70s? This feature-length documentary unearths the story of black women’s political marginalization—between the male-dominated Black Power movement and second wave feminism, which was largely white and middle class—showing how each failed to recognize black women’s overlapping racial and gender identities.

Archival footage and in-depth interviews with former members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), SNCC’s Black Women’s Liberation Committee, the Black Panther Party, Third World Women’s Alliance, and the National Black Women’s Feminist Organization reveal how black women mobilized, fought for recognition, and raised awareness of how sexism and class issues affected women of color within and outside The Black Power Movement and mainstream feminism. Prominently featured activists include Frances Beale, Angela Davis, Kola Boof, Nikki Giovanni, Rosemari Mealy, Judy Richardson, Gwendolyn Simmons, Deborah Singletary, and Eugenia Wiltshire.

The screening is open and free to the public. Refreshments and light snacks will be served
