Interview with Dr. Janet Dewart Bell

Time: 7:00 PM – 7:30 PM

About the Episode 

Dr. Brenda M. Greene and writer and social justice activist Dr. Janet Dewart Bell discuss Lighting the Fires of Freedom: African American Women in the Civil Rights Movement (The New Press, 2018). Greene and Bell discuss the interviews that Bell did with nine women who provide authentic, compelling, and stirring accounts of their lives as activists. They share their challenges, highlights, and the nature of the movement. The reader obtains a firsthand account of what it was like to be a Black woman in the Civil Rights Movement. A significant feature of these interviews is that some, such as Myrlie Evers-Williams, share aspects of their lives that they have not shared with anyone. Among the women featured in addition to Myrlie Evers-Williams are Dr. June Jackson Christmas, a trailblazing psychiatrist; Diane Nash, a leader of the Nashville Sit-In Movement; Judy Richardson, associate producer and education director for the documentary Eyes on the Prize; and Kathleen Cleaver, activist and professor of law.


About the Author

 Dr. Janet Dewart Bell is a social justice activist and award-winning television and radio producer. She founded the Derrick Bell Lecture on Race in American Society series at the New York University School of Law.
