−Beyond Respectability: Centering Black Women as Agents of Change @ New America4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Join New America’s Family-Centered Social Policy program for a conversation with Professor Brittney Cooper, author of Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women, about centering the narratives, experiences, and leadership of Black women as essential to charting a better future for us all.
Addressing the crowd at the Women’s March on Washington, civil rights activist and scholar Angela Davis said, “We recognize that we are collective agents of history and that history cannot be deleted like web pages.” While the March asserted the power of collective representation in mounting resistance, persistent blindspots compromise the institutions working to maintain it.
Recently, for example, a group of Black women civic and political leaders enumerated the leadership that Black women are taking to mobilize voters, run for office, and organize communities without support from, or key representation within, the Democratic National Committee. “There’s too much at stake,” reads the letter to DNC chairman Tom Perez, “to ignore Black women.”
In her new book, Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women, Cooper documents the development of African American women as public intellectuals and the evolution of their thought leadership from the end of the 1800s through the Black Power era of the 1970s. Her book provides critical insights and inspiration for recognizing and prioritizing Black women as agents of history and of our future.
Join us for a conversation on the imperative to center the leadership of Black women within institutions of power and influence to achieve a society that benefits us all. We will start from the historical perspective taken in Professor Cooper’s new book and then elevate contemporary examples of where the leadership of Black women are shaping narratives and strategies in electoral politics, media, and institutional design.
A happy hour reception and book signing will follow the conversation.
Copies of Beyond Respectability: The Intellectual Thought of Race Women will be available for purchase by credit card or check.

Have you ever felt paralyzed by possibility?
You have a big idea but you don’t know where to start.
You want to quit your job but don’t know what you’d do instead.
You want a promotion but you’ve been denied three times.
You just graduated and don’t know what career path to choose.
While we were in school, it was pretty simple to make a choice on what to do next in part because of the parameters. We pretty much knew after elementary school came junior high, then we’d go to high school and (maybe?) college. But now, you’re in the real world. There’s no one to tell us what comes next, and no one to blame if we hate the choice we make.
This conversation will focus on on how to move forward in your life and career when you are unsure what to do next. You might feel stuck in a job with no options and no promotion in sight, or you may be experiencing the infamous creative block preventing you from moving forward on your latest project. If so, know you’re not alone. There are ways to get unstuck and move forward. Join us for this dialogue where we’ll have the pleasure of hearing from four dynamic women who know your pain and can teach you how to break through the noise and take action.

WODW consists of two parts: a networking reception with over 200 professional women followed by 20+ simultaneous dinner parties in private homes and businesses throughout DC. These dinners feature lively discussions on topics ranging from achieving success at work to mindful meditation to breaking the glass ceiling.
First, you’ll meet at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue for a reception to honor Karen Mulhauser Award recipient and our Network of the Year award winner while enjoying dessert and wine. Afterwards, you’ll break off to attend one of 20+ engaging, thought-provoking, and fun dinner party discussions around the city.
WIN welcomes and encourages male colleagues and friends to attend our networking reception and keynote address, but to celebrate WIN’s mission, the dinners are reserved for those who identify as women, femme, or gender non-conforming.
