A national scholar visited Hood College to share her research about the impact race, class and gender have on public policies.
C. Nicole Mason, a professor and visiting scholar at Georgetown University, explored how even the smallest narratives and personal stories can make a change, especially in a time of activism and partisan thinking.
Mason emphasizes it is the effort put into daily lives that is important.
“These big acts are good. But that’s not where the work happens,” said Mason. “The work happens in our communities, in our one-on-one interactions, and holding one accountable for our needs and our worth.”
Mason then opened the floor to discussion about her lecture and her memoir.
