Say Her Name! Working for Social Justice at the Intersection of Race and Gender Thursday, February 11th, 4:00-5:30
Women of color have been disproportionately affected by police violence, but their stories receive little media attention compared to their male counterparts. The Say Her Name! movement seeks to make the fight for racial justice more inclusive of the experiences of women. The campaign brings to light the stories of women of color who have been killed by police and have experienced gender-specific forms of police violence. An all-women panel includes professors, community organizers, and gender and racial justice activists.
An evening with Dr. Cheryl Holder and Dr. Bernard Ashby on how systemic racism impacts our health disparities and access.

About the Arthur McDuffie Center:
The Arthur McDuffie Center for Racial Justice preserves and tells the stories of racial violence in Florida. The Rosewood Story, an exhibit at Barry University, is the first of those stories and includes rare artifacts from the town that was burned to the ground by a white mob in 1923. The McDuffie Center is named after Arthur Lee McDuffie, a man who was beaten to death by police officers in 1980. The acquittal of the police officers led to the McDuffie riots of 1980 in which much of Liberty City was burned and the National Guard was brought to Miami to restore order.
