    About the film:

    “Foxy Brown”, starring Pam Grier, was made in 1974 during the "blaxploitation" period. It is one of the earliest films depicting a woman in the role of a strong, powerful, fearless action hero. After her boyfriend is killed by a drug syndicate, Foxy Brown gets revenge using every cunning tool and manipulating trick at her disposal. A badass woman that stops at nothing and that can be stopped by nothing.

  • Black/Brown Power, Whiteness and Women: The 2020 Election Challenge—Democrats, Be the Light! Save America! (…and the World!)”

    The Global Women's Caucus, the Global Hispanic Caucus, and the Global Black Caucus have teamed up for a Women's History Month webinar

    In this webinar, "Black/Brown Power, Whiteness and Women:  The 2020 Election Challenge—Democrats, Be the Light! Save America! (…and the World!)” Ramona Houston, Ph.D., PMP, discusses how racial politics is at the root of Trumpism, which is precipitating the deterioration of American politics as well as America’s standing as a beacon of hope and leadership for the world.  In this webinar, Dr. Houston briefly explores the historical development of racism and whiteness in America, arguing that Democrats must understand this history and its manifestations to effectively dismantle Trumpism as well as develop more powerful multi-racial/multi-cultural coalitions and a stronger Democratic Party.  According to Dr. Houston, women play a vital role in this process.  

    Ultimately, Dr. Houston challenges Democrats to “Be the Light!” especially during the critical upcoming 2020 Elections—both locally and nationally.  Whether Black, Brown, or White, progressive or conservative, rural or urban, domestic or abroad, Ramona contends that ALL Democrats individually and collectively must work strategically and aggressively to destroy Trumpism, secure the Presidency, and win local elections.  By being the Light Democrats will usher in a greater and more perfect union, and most importantly, save America and the world!

  • Black History Month - "The Spook Who Sat by the Door" Watch Party

    Join us online to watch the film "The Spook Who Sat by the Door." After we watch the film there will be a discussion.

     

    About the film:

    This film was made in 1973 in the "blaxploitation" period and based on the 1969 novel by Sam Greenlee. The story shows the period of Black militancy in the late ’60s and early ’70s that followed the civil rights movement in America.

    It shows the discontented younger generation in Chicago, forming a guerilla movement and their revolt against the police. Wild and explosive!
