Columbia College Women
“Let me just say this: I’m a strong black woman, and I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly or anyone.” —Maxine Waters Helena Andrews Dyer '02, author and Washington Post reporter, will discuss her book Reclaiming Her Time about congresswoman Maxine Waters and her legacy as both one of the most powerful black women in America and a pop culture icon. Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to hear directly from the author as she discusses how the iconic "Auntie Maxine" continues to be "a role model, a crusader for justice, a game-changer, a trailblazer, and an advocate for the marginalized." Everyone is welcome: you do not have to read the book in order to attend this fun talk!
