35th ABWH Luncheon: Sold Out
The luncheon ticket sales have exceeded our expectations. We have sold out. If you mailed a check this week, you will receive a refund. If you would like to be placed on a wait list to purchase tickets, add your name here.
The luncheon is on Saturday, September 26, 2015, at 12:00 noon in the Grand Ballroom, Salon A on Level 3 at the Sheraton Hotel Downtown in Atlanta. Thanks again to our sponsors for their help in supporting the luncheon.
This year our three speakers--Kali Gross, Brenda Stevenson, and Rhonda Williams--will participate in a cross-generational dialogue that highlights what it means to be black woman scholar-activists in the increasingly neo-liberal university system and how black women historians are uniquely equipped to speak to what is happening to black women and girls in the United States Justice System.
September 17 is still the last day to request vegan meals. Email Luncheon Committee Chair Ula Y. Taylor,
