The Clothesline Project virtual t-shirt submissions

The Clothesline Project virtual t-shirt submissions

Monday, October 12, 2020 (All day) to Friday, October 16, 2020 (All day)

Each year the Women's and Gender Studies Program hosts The Clothesline Project in conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Clothesline Project is an interactive event that raises awareness for violence against women, the LGBTQ+ community, and other marginalized populations. Members of campus and greater community who have been affected by violence, be it first-hand or otherwise, are invited to decorate a shirt with their thoughts, feelings and supportive messages surrounding the topic of relationship violence or sexual assault. This year, t-shirt decorations will be virtual with a video of all decorated t-shirts released on the day of Bearing Witness.  You can decorate by saving a t-shirt from our Facebook event or https://csbs.uni.edu/womenstudies/clothesline-project.  Once you have created your virtual t-shirt, send it to WGS by emailing it to wgs@uni.edu.  All submissions will remain anonymous.

Blackdom

Blackdom

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 5:00 pm

UNI History alumnus, Dr. Timothy E. Nelson the Historian is passionate about the significance of the Afro-Frontier in American history, and he uncovers the forgotten history of Blackdom, New Mexico.
Dr. Nelson merges Blackdom’s history with New Western History, Borderland Studies, Diasporic Studies, and Blacks in the West, placing Afro-Frontierists® at the center of their histories, rather than as footnotes of other people’s histories.
Through his dissertation as well as his current outreach, Dr. Nelson’s goal is uncovering and advocating for untold stories. He unequivocally raises the voices of Afro-Frontierists®.
