Women's History Month
Queen Voices - Bridgett M. Davis: Lecture Series
QUEEN Voices is an engaging lecture series featuring dynamic women in conjunction with the exhibition QUEEN: From the Collection of CCH Pounder. This lecture series is important because it reinforces the themes of QUEEN: powerful women of the African diaspora, diverse feminism, Afrofuturism, and beauty. The entire series will be moderated by Roslyn Karamoko, founder and CEO of Détroit Is The New Black.
