Yoruba Richen

20 Mar, 2014

Richen, a filmaker that focuses on the feminist, LGBT & African American communities, presents a talk on the similarities between the gay rights and civil rights movements. Despite the tensions that can be found between the two, she argues that they are in fact very similar and that both movements need to work together towards a common cause and continue to push one another forward towards a better future.

So as these movements continue on, and as freedom struggles around the world continue on, let’s remember that not only are they interconnected, but they must support and enhance each other for us to be truly victorious.
