“An Evening with Aleia Brown” Twitter Chat

Wednesday, July 8, 2020 | 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EST

This Twitter presentation and discussion was led by Aleia Brown, with fellow Diversity and Inclusion Task Force members Modupe Labode and GVGK Tang as discussants. The conversation ultimately leads to transforming the field to center an ethic of care for Black life, particularly during the convergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and continued anti-Black violence.

Brown’s presentation is no longer on Twitter, but can be accessed here. Responses to the original Twitter chat by Labode and Tang can be accessed using #EthicofCare #BlackLife.
