Sisterlocking Discoarse: Race, Gender, and the Twenty-First-Century Academy – Book Reading on Jan. 19

You're invited to a book reading by Dr. Valerie Lee, professor emerita, The Ohio State University. Based on a career as a scholar, teacher, and administrator, Dr. Lee shares her wisdom about life and leadership in the academy. Drawing inspiration from the African American storytelling traditions she has spent decades studying and teaching, Lee approaches issues of race, gender, social justice, academic labor, and leadership with a voice that is clear, intimate, and humorous. Lee's journey will appeal to readers who are committed to making higher education more inclusive, while speaking more broadly to the experiences of professional women of color.  This virtual event is free and open to the public on Jan. 19 from 3:30-4:30pm.
