5th Annual Raquel Rubio Goldsmith Lecture set for Nov. 13

Raquel Rubio Goldsmith Lecture to Take Place Virtually
Features activist and educator Ericka Hart

Activist and educator Ericka Hart M.Ed. will deliver the keynote presentation for the Ethnic, Gender, Transborder Studies and Sociology Department’s 5th annual Raquel Rubio Goldsmith Lecture on Nov. 13. The event will take place virtually from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on the PCC TV Stream YouTube channel.

The title of Hart’s presentation is “Racial and Social Justice 101.” It will be a timely discussion on the meaning of social justice and ways that we can put ideas and beliefs of equality and justice into action.

Hart, an adjunct faculty member at the Columbia University’s School of Social Work, describes herself as a black queer femme activist, writer, speaker and sexuality educator. Taken from Hart’s website, “Audiences around the world admire Ericka for her ability to challenge anti-blackness everywhere it rears its head – from the front pages of magazines, fashion week runways to the lectern. She is committed to empowering students to make a difference in the world and with each other, opening up robust discourse that connects sexual health and wellness to the systemic issues at the root of social injustice.”

There will be a student-led Q&A after the presentation and an announcement related to the newly developed African American Studies courses that soon will be offered at the college.
