#45-23 Power Race Sex … Power: Is It a Sexual Thing?

A dynamic event titled “Power: Is It a Sexual Thing?” closed the National Association of Black Journalists conference in 1991. Moderator: Beverly “Bevy” Smith from Black Entertainment TV. Panelists: economist and syndicated columnist Julianne Malveaux; Gwendolyn Grant, a psychologist and columnist for Essence magazine; columnist Dorothy Butler Gilliam, first African American woman reporter at The Washington Post; and anthropologist Niara Sudarkasa, president of Lincoln University. They held a vibrant – almost rollicking – discussion among distinctive viewpoints on Black women’s power and that of their communities. Updated to 2024.
