Because of Anita: Truth, Justice, Race, Gender, and Power—30 Years Later, with Professor Anita Hill
A USC Visions & Voices Event | In October 1991, Anita Hill’s landmark testimony—that her former boss, Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, had sexually harassed her—ignited a movement. This month marks the 30th anniversary of the hearings, and the issues they raised are as urgent today as ever. What’s changed, what hasn’t, and what needs our attention now? Cindi Leive and Salamishah Tillet, co-hosts of the new podcast Because of Anita, will host an afternoon of programming culminating in a keynote interview with Professor Anita Hill that will look at the 30-year ripple effects of Hill’s testimony. Additional speakers to be announced.
