We warmly invite you to engage with Mikki Kendall, the New York Times bestseller author of Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women that a Movement Forgot. Mikki Kendall is a writer, diversity consultant, and occasional feminist who speaks on intersectionality, policing, gender, sexual assault, and other current events. Her essays can be found at TIME, the New York Times, The Guardian, the Washington Post, Ebony, Essence, Salon, The Boston Globe, NBC, Bustle, Islamic Monthly, and a host of other sites. Her media appearances include BBC, NPR, the Daily Show, PBS, Good Morning America, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, WVON, WBEZ, and Showtime.
Mikki Kendall and Columbia College Chicago’s Associate Professor Raquel L. Monroe, Ph.D. will delve into Kendall’s book Hood Feminism: Notes from the Women that a Movement Forgot. Mikki will share her ideas on resisting isolation as a critically engaged writer and artist involved in social movements. How creatives can work in collaboration with organizations to address issues like gun violence and hunger through the lens of hood feminism will also be discussed.
Established by the School of Fine and Performing Arts in 2018, this series encourages cross campus collaborations and sharing of knowledge leading to collective impact. Collective Impact strives to bring students, alumni, faculty, staff, and Chicago community members together with nationally renowned artists and community leaders to discuss the challenges and organization of community engagement and social justice in art making.
