Princeton Prof. To Discuss Race, Gender, Politics

 KINGSTON, R.I. – Melissa Harris-Perry, formerly known as Melissa Harris-Lacewell, will speak at the University of Rhode Island, Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. Her lecture, “How Black Women’s Stories Complicate Race and Gender Politics,” will be delivered in Edwards Auditorium, 64 Upper College Road, Kingston. The talk, free and open to the public, is part of URI’s ongoing Honors Colloquium on Race. 

Harris-Perry, associate professor of politics and African American studies at Princeton University, primarily focuses on the daily challenges black Americans face to better understand their multiple, creative responses. 

She is at work on a new book, Sister Citizen: A Text For Colored Girls Who’ve Considered Politics When Being Strong Wasn’t Enough, touching on various aspects of racial and gender issues and how they influence political thought. 

Harris-Perry provides expert commentary on U.S. elections, racial issues, religious questions and gender concerns for both “The Rachel Maddow Show” and “Countdown with Keith Olbermann.” Her writings have appeared in newspapers throughout the country, and she writes a monthly column for The Nation magazine titled “Sister Citizen.” She is also a regular contributor at TheNation.com.

“Harris- Perry was invited to the colloquium because of her clear and perceptive attitudes regarding the issues of both race and gender. Her public appearances on news outlets have shown her to be willing to challenge assumptions and bring new depth to these important issues,” said Gail Faris, assistant director of student life and the Women’s Center who is one of the colloquium coordinators. “We anticipate that having her speak towards the end of the series will provide the audience with a closing that will help capture the essence of the other guest speakers.”
