#SAYHERNAME: Towards a Gender Inclusive Movement for Black Lives
Dr. Brittney Cooper speaks about the experiences of cis and transgender women in the Black Lives Matter movement. Featured as part of the fall 2015 university course "The Ferguson Movement: Power, Politics, and Protest," led by Professor Dorothy Brown, Dr. Cooper's talk came at the invitation of Drs. Donna Troka and Pamela Scully of Emory's Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE). An overflowing audience of students, faculty, and the public attended Dr. Cooper's lecture on November 3, 2015 in the Woodruff Library's Jones Room. A well-known activist and black feminist theorist, Cooper places the #SayHerName campaign within the contexts of feminist and queer theory genealogies, as well black activism. CFDE and the James Weldon Johnson Institute co-sponsored this lecture.
