A performance by Dr. Elaine Richardson that illustrates traumatic events that can lead girls into the juvenile justice system and dangerous lifestyles; followed by a panel discussion featuring Gabriella Celeste, Schubert Center for Child Studies and Maria Miranada, Revolution Planner.
Dr. E’s story takes the audience from the streets of Cleveland through her undergraduate and graduate experiences to earning a PhD. Dr. E’s inspirational life and this narrative account represent the triumph of the human spirit and the indomitable will to survive -and thrive- “against all odds” (as Tupac would have put it). Rising from the ashes of poverty and the debilitating effects of street life, she has become an award-winning scholar and champion of the African American quest for literacy and freedom.
Co-sponsored by: The Social Justice Institute, the Flora Stone Mather for Women, the CWRU Law School and the U.S. District Court, N.D. Ohio Attorney Admissions Fund.
