On July 21 a group of distinguished panelists will discuss peer pressure to "act black" as defined by stereotypes in videos and movies. They will also talk about early experiences of sexism, confront ongoing imbalances in corporate America between black female executives and their male counterparts and consider what it means to be "misrepresented as a 'bitch' because one is assertive and out-spoken."
The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin is about a young African-American girl searching for her identity. Panelists include Dr. Rychetta Watkins (Rhodes College), Wendi Thomas (columnist, Commercial Appeal), Ruby Bright (CEO, President, Women's Foundation), Jackie Williams (President, YWCA), and others.
