Tulane students, faculty and staff, as well as members of the New Orleans community convened in McAlister Auditorium for the 2017 Tulane Reading Project keynote lecture by noted civil rights advocate and scholar Kimberlé Crenshaw. 


The line to enter McAlister Auditorium for Crenshaw’s talk extended down McAlister Place for close to an hour.
Crenshaw delivers her Powerpoint address titled, “The Intersectional Paradigm: Race and Gender in Work, Life and Politics.”
Audience members raise hands in response to questions posed by Crenshaw.
