Amplify! Black Women of the Movement
On March 25, the African American Museum in Philadelphia is holding the Amplify! Black Women of the Movement Symposium. This free, day-long symposium (9am-4pm) celebrates the impact of Black women who have helped to reshape the American framework, but whose contributions are often overlooked and ignored. From providing services for communities and making groundbreaking discoveries, to normalizing Black hair and the politics of the body, this symposium will feature stories of Black women who have re-imagined education, the arts, science, and health in various ways. Keynote speaker Shantrelle Lewis is a 2014 United Nations Programme for People of African Descent Fellow and 2012-13 Andy Warhol Curatorial Fellow. Presented by the African American Museum in Philadelphia, Smithsonian Institute, Independence National Historical Park and Friends of Independence National Historical Park with support of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society.
