Reinterpreting Margaret Sanger

Thu, Feb 13 2020 - 4:15pm to 5:30pm
Seelye Hall 201

A Five College Discussion with Loretta Ross, Joyce Follet and Joyce Berkman

When a Black woman walks through anti-abortion protesters at abortion clinics, chants of “Martin Luther King” and “Margaret Sanger” dog their footsteps, usually shouted by white people who claim that abortion is black genocide. They entwine these two iconic names as if one contradicts the other. This workshop will explore how the intersection of race and gender affects how Margaret Sanger is interpreted through a Black feminist lens.
