'The Laugh of the Black Medusa'

From the event description:

When Desiree Fairooz was removed from the 2017 U.S. Attorney General confirmation hearing, it wasn’t the first time a woman was persecuted for laughing out loud. In 2015, 11 women were kicked off a Napa Valley wine train, sparking the Twitter hashtag: #LaughingWhileBlack. Laughter in recorded music reveals how women circumvent patriarchy, point out false truths, create space for unhindered expression and reconcile a divided mind. 

When: Saturday, Oct. 12, 11 a.m.-noon
Where: The Hahnes Building, Express Newark, 54 Halsey St., Room 312
