In her talk—titled "1949: Claudia Jones and Simone de Beauvoir 70 Years Later"—she will imagine a debate between Claudia Jones ("An End to the Neglect of the Problems of Negro Women!") and Simone de Beauvoir (The Second Sex), paying particular attention to Jones's triple oppression analysis of Black women as simultaneously raced, classed, and gendered.
