Kimberlé Crenshaw, professor of law at UCLA and Columbia Law School, is a leading authority in the area of civil rights;Black feminist legal theory; and race, racism and the law. She is the founding coordinator of the Critical Race Theory Workshop and the co-editor of Critical Race Theory: Key Documents That Shaped the Movement. She writes for Ms. Magazine and The Nation, and is a regular commentator on The Tavis Smiley Show, NPR, and MSNBC. In 1996, she co-founded the African American Policy Forum  (AAPF) to house a variety of projects designed to deliver research-based strategies to better advance social inclusion.

In this talk, Crenshaw will discuss an array of initiatives to elevate long-ignored issues of concern to black women and girls, including #HerDreamDeferred and #SayHerName in remembrance of Black women and girls killed by the police.
