The Silence Breakers and the Me Too Movement 7:00-8:30 pm
Monday, March 4, 2019, 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM
100 2nd St. S.E.
Macalester College professor Dr. Duchess Harris, author of Hidden Human Computers: The Black Women of NASA, will speak on her newest book, The Silence Breakers and the #MeToo Movement. The book, written for high school students, explores the movement promoting awareness of sexual abuse, harassment and assault in the U. S. Through this movement, silence breakers have spoken out and held abusers accountable for their actions. Harris promises the talk will be uplifting and help us understand how young people can think about trauma and vulnerability.
