Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement
A Book Talk with Tarana Burke
From the founder and activist behind one of the most impactful social justice movements in contemporary American history, Tarana Burke debuts a powerful memoir, Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement, that details her journey to those two simple yet infinitely powerful two words— #MeToo, that drove the devastating impact of rampant, unchecked sexual assault HOME to millions across the globe.
This event is part of our year-long exploration on the theme of "Home, What does it look like now?" How can we reconsider home in the 21st century as we cross states and borders seeking comfort, safety and identity? Against the backdrop of a global pandemic, state sanctioned violence against black bodies coupled with enhancing diverse and inclusive curricula, the Center for Black Visual Culture (CBVC) will explore the significant ways black visual narratives respond to the cultural, dynamic political, social, economic as well intimate changes that force us to (re)interrogate previous conceptions of home.
Cosponsored by the Office of Global Inclusion, Diversity, and Strategic Innovation, the 370J Project, the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, the Department of Social & Cultural Analysis, New York University; and the Department of Photography & Imaging, NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
