From the Equal Rights Amendment to Black Lives Matter: Reflecting on Intersectional Struggles for Equality
This virtual symposium will explore the intersectional nature of race and sex (including LGBTQ+) equality movements, the contributions of activists with intersectional identities, and the potential role of intersectional theories to inform future efforts to advance race and sex equality. The symposium will culminate in a keynote address by Elaine R. Jones ’70 at 1:50 p.m. Jones is the first Black woman to graduate from UVA Law School — 50 years ago — and the first woman to serve as director-counsel and president of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund. During the event, the 2021 Gregory H. Swanson Award will be presented. Named after UVA’s first Black student, the award recognizes UVA law students who demonstrate courage, perseverance and a commitment to justice. The event is co-sponsored by the Center for the Study of Race and Law and the Virginia Law Review.
