The Intentional Ally: Knowing When to Sit and When to Stand

Friday, September 28, 2018 @ 2:15 pm - 4:30 pm

Activist, writer, and lecturer Rachel Elizabeth Cargle, famously known as the Beyonce of Academia, is kicking off the new semester at RS@B with her talk The Intentional Ally: Knowing When to Sit and When to Stand on Friday, September 28th, at 2:15pm, at the Goldman School of Public Policy, Room 105.

Rachel’s activist and academic work are rooted in providing intellectual discourse, tools, and resources that explore the intersection of race and womanhood.  Her social media platforms boast a community of over 90k where Rachel guides conversations, encourages critical thinking and nurtures meaningful engagement with people all over the world.  Her public lecture Unpacking White Feminism has been featured on campuses around the country such as American University, Tulane, and The Ohio State University. Along with a monthly column on HarpersBazaar.com her writing and commentary has been featured on The Guardian, Teen Vogue, PopSugar, Afropunk, Essence, HuffingtonPost, Refinery29, and Call Your Girlfriend. Rachel is currently living in NYC and attending Columbia University where she is studying Anthropology and Women’s Studies.

In this session, Rachel will provide you with tools for:
  • organizing and elevating your message, 
  • coalition-building across different identities,
  • using social media for good, and
  • collective self-care for activists. 

By the end of her session you’ll:

  • be able to discern between speaking for, speaking on behalf of, and speaking over marginalized voices, and 
  • develop greater awareness of your intentions within your alliances throughout your activism and advocacy work.
