Created Equal: Black Women and the Fight for Equality
Leon County Government and The Village Square will host the eighth annual Created Equal program, entitled Created Equal: Black Women and the Fight for Equality, on March 23, 2023. The program will examine the histories and current realities of Black women in America and the struggles they continue to face in the areas of health, economy, community, and education.
Throughout American history, Black women have been expected to serve and support others. Now, what should be done to support Black women?
Despite Black women being the anchor for their families, networks, and community, they continue to be disregarded for economic opportunities, dismissed in health care, and deprioritized in society. Black women in America have historically faced an intersectional disadvantage due to both race and gender discrimination, and these challenges continue to persist today.
Join the discussion at the eighth annual Created Equal on Thursday, March 23 at The Moon, 1105 E Lafayette St. Pizza, salad, and drinks will be provided at 5:30 p.m. The panel discussion will begin at 6 p.m., followed by table conversations among attendees.
