Celebrating Women’s History Month

by | Mar 31, 2021 | Diversity News & Profiles

The HCHSAA’s Diversity Committee organized a program in celebration of Women’s History Month that was focused on the legacy and efforts of Michelle Obama, the nation’s first African-American First Lady.

Dr. Khadijah Miller and Dr. Ernestine WILLIAMS Duncan ’79 discussed their book chapter, “Negotiated Respectability, the Looking Glass Self and Mrs. Michelle Obama.” The book in which their chapter appears, Michelle Obama and the FLOTUS Effect: Platform, Presence, and Agency (Lexington Books 2019) delves into her pioneering work in the White House; she intentionally defined her role and herself in ways that countered and complemented the images and works of previous First Ladies.

If you missed the discussion, a video recordng is available on YouTube.
