Flying University is a re-education in conveniently forgotten histories.
This talk series is named after the underground university in Russian-occupied Poland that taught subjects banned by the state-run schools. This rebel organization also educated women, who were barred from attending the official university, including Marie Curie. In that spirit, each Flying University talk highlights a piece of history that has been “conveniently forgotten”. Let’s set the record straight.
Robyn C. Spencer – The Women of the Black Panther Movement
With opening talks by:
Elizabeth Hira – Sex Equality in the Civil Rights Amendment
Lucie Levine – The Liberator: Crystal Eastman and Radical Feminism
