Race, Womanhood, and Deconstructing Political Barriers

February 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST

It is a hopeful time to see so many black and brown women running for political office in the South. And, as per usual, Durham is leading the way. However, we must recognize that historically black and brown women have faced institutional barriers on the path to holding political power. As a result, we continue to see a lack of attention and action in the political sphere around the issues central to black and brown women and their families. “Race, Womanhood, and Deconstructing Political Barriers” empowers current black and brown female candidates out of Durham to speak on these powerful issues and the necessity to uplift black and brown female leadership.

Panelists Include:

Natalie Murdock (NC Senate District 20 Candidate)
Vernetta Alston (NC House District 29 Candidate)
Nida Allam (Durham County Commissioner Candidate)
Nimasheena Burns (Durham County Commissioner Candidate)
Brenda Howerton (Durham County Commissioner Candidate)
Regina Mays (Durham County Commissioner Candidate)
Jovonia Lewis (Durham County Board of Education Consolidated District A Candidate)
