March 19: Anita: Speaking Truth to Power
In 1991, law professor Anita Hill testified before a Senate committee considering Clarence Thomas’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. By recounting the sexual harassment she had endured from Thomas, she highlighted issues of power and sexual misconduct in the workplace that remain relevant in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp. In the years since her testimony, she has become an icon as a woman willing to stand up for racial and gender justice and equality—to “speak truth to power.”
Speaker: Tara Richards, School of Criminal Justice, University of Baltimore
