The university welcomes Melissa Harris-Perry, the Maya Angelou Presidential Chair at Wake Forest University, for a talk entitled “Need/Want a Community for All? Here’s How We Get There.” Harris-Perry teaches courses on American politics and elections at the intersections of race, place, and gender.

For nearly two decades, she has contributed to American public life through her distinct combination of scholarly analysis and grounded wisdom applied to analysis of race, gender, politics, and power. To participate, go to, or view a livestream

Harris-Perry’s talk is sponsored by the university’s Leading for Change Committee and the Newman Center and presented as part of our celebration of Women's Herstory Month.
