education and empowerment A Woman Like That

The Plight of a Dark-Skinned Girl

Thursday, March 1, 2012

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

The Helene Fortunoff Theater, Monroe Lecture Center, California Avenue, South Campus

Guthart Cultural Center Theater, Axinn Library, South Campus

A Woman Like That is a freewheeling tribute to Artemisia Gentileschi, an artist whose own bold life and inspiring message leaps across centuries to speak to us all. The enduring power of storytelling — in paintings, in films and in our lives — is revealed, as the filmmaker learns that who gets to tell the story matters, and that maybe she too, can be “a woman like that.” For more information, please contact Martha Hollander at 516-463-5058. Sponsored by The Department of Fine Arts and Art History and the Hofstra Cultural Center.

Keynote speaker Stacy Clark addresses the plight of being ridiculed for the color of one’s skin, especially amongst women in our society. For more information, please contact Deion Toppin at deiontoppin@yahoo.com. Sponsored by The Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated and NAACP.
