"You've Got a Place Here, Too": A Conversation on Black Women in the Global Arts
The global nature of the arts presents both opportunities and challenges, especially for Black women. In honor of Black History Month, join the Walsh School of Foreign Service as we celebrate and recognize the contributions of Black women in the creative arts around the world. A panel of musicians, speakers and writers will discuss the intersection of race and gender in the arts, and how those identities play out in specific ways in different international contexts.

Registration through Zoom is required for this event. To request accommodations (such as closed captioning) due to a disability, contact sfsevents@georgetown.edu no later than noon on Friday, February 19. A good-faith effort will be made to fulfill all requests for accommodation.

The title of this event comes from Nikki Giovanni’s poem “BLK History Month”:

If Black History Month is not
viable then wind does not
carry the seeds and drop them
on fertile ground
rain does not
dampen the land
and encourage the seeds
to root
sun does not
warm the earth
and kiss the seedlings
and tell them plain:
You’re As Good As Anybody Else
You’ve Got A Place Here, Too
