As part of our Events at Home Series, the Foundation will be presenting a very timely talk on March 30 from 5:30-6:30pm by CSM Professor Seon-Hye Moon: Can Dolly Save Us? Examining American Exceptionalism Through a Black Feminist Perspective.
The past few years have been Dolly years. What drives our current cultural fascination–and worship–of Dolly Parton? How can we read this alongside the realities of our #BlackLivesMatter and the #MeToo movements? Is there a connection? This talk will explore these questions through the work of Black feminist scholars.
