Mamphela Ramphele | Can African Women Redefine Liberation for All?

October 6, 2015
Mamphela Ramphele, Can African Women Redefine Liberation for All?

Mamphela Aletta Ramphele BI ’89, of South Africa, is interested in whether African women can redefine freedom for the benefit of all. If so, what would it take to redefine freedom? How different would such redefined freedom be from the postcolonial and postapartheid freedom Africa is experiencing now? What values, systems, and practices would characterize freedom for all as a lived experience? And why should we focus on African women as agents of change?

Opening remarks by Lizabeth Cohen, Dean of the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study and the Howard Mumford Jones Professor of American Studies at Harvard University

Introduction by Jane Kamensky, the Carl and Lily Pforzheimer Foundation Director of the Schlesinger Library

Acrylic scapes are lit from within and below by internal LED lighting. Using a combination of infrared and ultrasound proximity sensors the scapes react to natural forces and the movement of pedestrians in the garden.
