The leadership styles of Black women.

This event takes place at the British Library.

Professor Carole Boyce Davies’s new book, Black Women's Rights: Leadership and the Circularities of Power explores the leadership styles demonstrated by women of African descent. It presents Black women as alternative and transformative leaders in the highest political position and at grassroots community levels.

She examines the political leadership in the Presidency of Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the historical role of Shirley Chisholm as the first woman to run for presidency of the United States on a leading party ticket, the promise of the Black left feminist leadership of Brazilian Marielle Franco, and the current model of Prime Minister Mia Mottley of Barbados in advancing new leadership models from the Caribbean.

Join her, in conversation, for a refreshing take on Black female leadership.

Half Price tickets available for Members, Students, Under 26s and other concession groups.

Carole Boyce Davies, an endowed professor of Africana Studies and Literatures in English at Cornell University, is a leading scholar of African Diaspora, Black feminist theories and literatures, and Black women's writings internationally.
