Can Dolly Save Us?

Examining American Exceptionalism Through a Black Feminist Perspective

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 | 5:30-6:30pm PDT

A collaboration between SMCCCF and Professor Seon-Hye Moon

The past few years have been Dolly years. What drives our current cultural fascination--and worship--of Dolly Parton? How can we read this alongside the realities of our #BlackLivesMatter and the #MeToo movements? Is there a connection? This talk will explore these questions through the work of Black feminist scholars.
