In celebration of Black History Month and the Heman Sweatt Symposium’s 30th anniversary, the DDCE presents a conversation on race and gender at UT Austin titled “EnGENDERing Power on the 40 Acres: The Integration story at UT.” The event will take place on Feb. 24, 6:30 p.m. at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, Bass Lecture Hall.
Speakers include three Precursors who helped pave the way for women of color at UT: Sheryl Griffin Bozemen (’65), Judith Jenkins (’69) and Judge Harriet Murphy (’69). The Precursors are a group of African American alumni who were among the first Black students to attend and integrate UT Austin more than 40 years ago.
The conversation will be moderated by Longhorn Network analyst and former UT Women’s Basketball champion Fran Harris (’82).
