Women's Herstory Month 2021 Keynote Presentation
An Emergent Conversation:
Rest, Revolution and Liberation
Join us tonight, March 2, 2021 at 7 p.m. via Zoom. Register at go.ncsu.edu/whm.

As we move into Women’s Herstory Month, we recognize the need to assert rest as a site for liberation within our voices, bodies and stories. This year, the theme for NC State’s Black History Month asked us to stop and consider rest as a place for liberation, necessary for pleasure, joy and resistance.

The Women’s Center extends this theme into March as a month to explore our past, present and future as we begin to think about ourselves as sites for a revolution at the intersection of our internal interrogation of self and identity with the theme of “Our Voices, Our Bodies, Our Stories: The Revolution within Us.”

In partnership with the African American Cultural Center and Multicultural Student Affairs, this year’s keynote, “An Emergent Conversation: Rest, Revolution, and Liberation,” features Yaba Blay, scholar-activist, public speaker, cultural consultant, and creator of #professionalblackgirl; Natalie Bullock-Brown from NC State’s Department of Interdisciplinary Studies; and student scholars Joanay Tann and Kali Fillhart.
