The Columbus Area Arts Council (CAAC) is bringing Columbus natives Chasten and Marja Harmon back to Columbus – virtually – for Part Two of a three-part online speaker series, Women Makers, Artists, and Entrepreneurs – Working & Living in Full Color. This series is presented by CAAC, in collaboration with the African American Fund of Bartholomew County and the IUPUC Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program. The series highlights women of color whose work is centered around creativity and social justice. Speakers represent a broad range of disciplines, including architecture and design, performing arts, language and cultural studies.

In Part Two of the series, sisters Chasten and Marja return – virtually – to Columbus. They’ll reflect on their experiences as Black women growing up in southern Indiana, and share more about their personal and professional journeys since leaving their hometown. The discusson will be moderated by IUPUC professor, Aimee Zoeller.

"The IUPUC Women, Gender, & Sexuality program is thrilled to support Marja and Chasten's homecoming conversation on Black feminism and the arts,” says Aimee Zoeller. “Marja and Chasten intentionally weave together their creative and social justice work. The Columbus community will benefit from their experience with opportunities and barriers in the effort to carve out such a life."
