Talk: Selma James

When: Back to Calendar » December 1, 2012 @ 11:00 am

Selma James is a noted women’s rights activist, a champion of the antiwar movement and for racial equality.  She is also a celebrated author and the international coordinator of the Global Women’s Strike. Called “one of the key political thinkers and activists of our times,” James’s work has addressed the power relations within the working class movement, and the challenges of organizing across sectors despite divisions of sex, race, age,and other factors.

Building on her well-received tour last spring to promote the publication of her book Sex, Race and Class, The Perspective of Winning — A Selection of Writings, 1952-2011, James’s visit is part of a tour in the US and Canada to help build the grassroots movement and launch a campaign to eliminate child poverty and value care-giving.
