Ange-marie Hancock, Associate Professor of Political Science and Gender Studies at the University of Southern California will deliver the 24th Annual Sonja Haynes Stone Memorial Lecture. She previously taught at Yale University, Penn State University and the University of San Francisco. Chancellor Folt will attend to give welcoming remarks.

The lecture will cover what philanthropy, social movement activists, scholar activists, allies and policy makers can do to ensure sustainable social transformation toward incorporating Black humanity into the United States.

Professor Hancock is a highly regarded scholar of the study of intersectionality – the study of the intersections of race, gender, class and sexuality politics and their impact on public policy.

Hancock received her Bachelor’s degree in Politics from New York University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to graduate school, Hancock worked for the National Basketball Association where, under the mentorship of NBA Hall of Famer Satch Sanders, she conducted the preliminary research and created the original business model for the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA).
