Power Race Sex

For US Black History Month, today’s program provides excerpts from a very vibrant – almost rollicking discussion among distinctive viewpoints on Black women’s power and that of their communities from the panel “Power: Is It a Sexual Thing?” at the National Association of Black Journalists conference, 1991, held in Kansas City, Missouri (updated to 2024). The Moderator is Beverly “Bevy” Smith from Black Entertainment TV. Panelists: economist and columnist Julianne Malveaux; Gwendolyn Grant from the Kansas City Urban League and KCTP public TV; columnist Dorothy Butler Gilliam, first African American woman reporter at The Washington Post; and, anthropologist Niara Sudarkasa, president of Lincoln University.

The Women’s International News Gathering Service (WINGS) has been covering the global women’s movement and related issues for community radio since 1986. WINGS may be contacted at [email protected].
