In his 2013 inaugural address, President Obama invoked three key events in the struggle for equality and liberation in the U.S.:  Seneca Falls (women’s rights, 1848), Selma, Alabama (racial equality, 1965), and Stonewall, NYC (gay/trans liberation, 1969). Historian Priscilla Murolo, NAACP Portland President Rachel Talbot Ross, and trans activist and author Kate Bornstein discuss the significance of these events.

Co-sponsored by: USM Women & Gender Studies, Office of Undergraduate Programs & Core Curriculum, School of Social Work, Multicultural Student Affairs; and NAACP Portland Branch.
