Empowerment Series For Women's History Month-Chicago State University

Empowerment Series For Women's History Month-Chicago State University

On Tuesday, March 19, from 12pm-2pm, in honor of Women's History Month (WHM), Chicago State University is hosting  Dr. Elizabeth Johnson, Assistant Professor of History at Governors State University and author of Resistance and Empowerment in Black Women's Hair Styling.   

Often defined by the media's beliefs and definition of beauty and our own thoughts about our hair, Dr. Johnson's book and research supports the belief that "hair becomes a physical manifestation of African American women's self-identity, revealing a private and personal mindset".  Truly this presentation will be inspiring and educational for all who know or can identify with the struggle between hair and self worth.

Sponsored by the WHM Committee, Women and Gender Studies, and the Department of Criminal Justice, Philosophy, and Political Science, this presentation will be held on the Campus of Chicago State University in the Student Union Building.  For more information, please call (773) 995-2000
