Participants at the Hammer's 2018 Her Dream Deferred program

Her Dream Deferred

Copresented with the African American Policy Forum

In celebration of the black women and girls who have continually been on the front lines of progressive change movements, this three-day series explores their status in the United States, lifting their voices and stories to mobilize intersectional coalitions and find solutions to social injustice. Organized by Kimberlé Crenshaw, Columbia University and UCLA law professor.
