Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries - including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists - who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

Hans Heilbronner Lecture: Violence Between Pogroms and the Holocaust
Wednesday, March 30, 2022 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Memorial Union Building Theater II

The Hans Heilbronner Lecture series presents Violence Between Pogroms and the Holocaust: Jewish Women as Victims, Chroniclers and Survivors, by Prof. Elissa Bemporad. 

This talk will highlight women’s experiences of continuities between the Holocaust and the wave of anti-Jewish violence that occurred in the same territories of Eastern Europe some twenty years earlier, termed pogroms. Few have explored different roles that Jewish women came to play in the midst of these pogroms and the direct relationship between the Holocaust and the genocidal violence against the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe unleashed during the pogroms of the Russian Civil War, 1918-1921.

Eddie S. Glaude: Race and Democracy
Thursday, March 31, 2022 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
Memorial Union Building Granite State Room

America’s great promise of equality has always rung hollow in the ears of Black Americans. Today, more than 60 years after the civil rights movement, Dr. Eddie Glaude Jr. says the situation is equally dire — and yet, the promise still lives. Drawing from his landmark book, Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul and his New York Times bestseller Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and its Urgent Lessons for Our Own, Dr. Glaude presents a picture of race and democracy that is colored by current events and framed by African American history. Bearing witness to the difficult truth in our country today, Dr. Glaude lays bare the tangled web of race, trauma and memory, and what we all must ask of ourselves in order to call forth a new America.

Glaude is the James S. McDonnel Distinguished University Professor and Chair of the Dept of African American Studies at Princeton.

Event is co-sponsred by CEPS, COLA, COLSA, Graduate School,  MUB, Office of President, Paul College, Sustainability Institute, Women and Gender Studies and Community, Equity, and Diversity Office
