From Minneapolis to Milan: The Global Movement for Black Lives in Europe

October 6 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Zoom, 1030 N Columbia Ave
Claremont, CA 91711

George Floyd’s killing at the hands of police galvanized an insurgent global movement for Black Lives. Protests in solidarity with Black Lives Matter drew thousands in major European capitals as people flouted pandemic related restrictions to stand in solidarity with African Americans facing police violence. In the UK, symbols of the colonial past came down in quick succession. Yet, larger structural issues remain unaddressed. While Europe birthed the concept of race, race is often treated as an American problem and…

Roxanne Wilson Leader-in-Residence: Emily Ramshaw

October 8 @ 5:00 pm - 5:45 pm

Electability. Likability. These words, used to describe Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, were oft repeated as the 2016 presidential election unfolded. For Emily Ramshaw, a journalist and new mother, these words invoked ire. Why did media coverage focus on this during such a historic race? It took another presidential campaign cycle—one with more female candidates vying for the nomination than ever before—for Ramshaw to do something concrete about her frustration.

The seeds for this memoir may have been sown in Kendra Atleework ’11’s hometown of Small Meadows in the Eastern Sierras, a place that’s at the center of her debut, but her writing was nourished during her time at Scripps. California’s landscape and the College have been similarly nourishing to April Collier Dávila…
