Race and Reconciliation will present a panel discussion titled, "Feminism, Womanism in Black and White."

The event is set 6-8 p.m. Thursday, March 16 at the Earl J. Bowden Building, 120 Church St., Pensacola.

“Tensions arose during the recent women's marches, when many people of color refused to participate, saying that traditional feminism has been a movement for white people and continues to marginalize women of color,” a Race and Reconciliation media release states. “Our panel plans to explore these issues.”

Local activists Mary Collins, Samantha Jackson, Haley Morrissette and Nicole Bowman will talk for about 10 minutes each, followed by audience discussion.
