With the rise of the #metoo and Time's Up movements, what is the role of the arts and artists in supporting the education, agency and self-expression of young females globally? Three discussants -- singer Angélique Kidjo (2018 Harvard Jazz Master), playwright Ifeoma Fafunwa (2017-2018 Mary I. Bunting Institute Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study | Harvard University and humanitarian Aubrey Doyle (Dubin Fellow at the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School, MPP ‘18) -- will join a town hall-style conversation 4:30 p.m. Thursday April 12 at Lowell Lecture Hall to share their knowledge and discuss activist work that focuses on girls around the world. The event will include a performance by Kidjo, a reading from Fafunwa's play HEAR WORD! Naija Woman Talk True (staged earlier this year at American Repertory Theater) and a performance by undergraduate singers in Kuumba. The event is free and open to the public. All are welcome.
