Celebrating Women's History Month at the Center is always a joy. This year is even more special since we are honoring Toni Cade Bambara, whose birthday is March 25, for our 10th anniversary conference!!!! During the gathering we are premiering a documentary about the Digital Moving Image Salon and its founding director, Professor Ayoka Chenzira, as well as acknowledging publicly the Toni Cade Bambara papers which are housed in the Spelman Archives. We are excited about the broad range of activities associated with the Women's Center's endowment campaign, and are thankful for the recent campus visit of Anita Hill, one of our National Advisory Board members. As we honor the extraordinary work and vision of countless women here and around the globe, we urge you to remember in your own way those women who have helped to change the world as well as your own personal lives.
Free for High School and College Students with valid school identification. For more information on this event, please contact the Gwendolyn Brooks Center via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 773-995-4440.
