More about the Speaker
A distinguished professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, Ramsey holds the John D. MacArthur Chair in the departments of African American Studies, Gender and Women’s Studies, and History. She also directs the campuswide Social Justice Initiative, a project that promotes connections between scholars and community organizers who are doing work on social justice.
Land and Labor Acknowledgement
As a land grant institution, UCLA acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (Los Angeles basin, So. Channel Islands) and are grateful to have the opportunity to work for the taraaxotam (Indigenous peoples) in this place. We pay our respects to Honuukvetam (Ancestors), elders, and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
We hold sacred the labor of enslaved Africans and immigrants, often exploited, indentured and underpaid, that built and continue to serve our institutions of higher education. We honor the labor and resistance of these ancestors, acknowledge that we benefit from this land and labor, and strive to work towards liberation for all.
