Elizabeth Warren is set to speak at one of the oldest Historically Black Colleges in the nation.
The Democratic presidential candidate will head to Clark Atlanta University to give a speech on Thursday, Nov. 21, according to a press release sent to BET.
Joining the Massachusetts Senator will be special guest U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley, an updated press release sent to BET states.
Warren tweeted a special preview video of the speech, narrated by Roxane Gay, on Tuesday (Nov. 19).
From the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory to the Atlanta Washerwomen Strike, history has proven that when working women fight together, they win. Hear @rgay share that story—and then join me in Atlanta on Thursday, where I'll be sharing how we can put power in the hands of the people. pic.twitter.com/AsdbVDKbsc— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) November 20, 2019
Warren will honor the historic legacy of Black women protesting. She will touch on some of the most persistent and fearless fighters, from the Black washerwomen who went on strike in 1881 to domestic workers’ rights activists almost a century later, the press release states.
On Thursday (Nov. 7), Warren went to North Carolina A&T, one of her campaign stops in the state, where she took part in a live recording of the political and pop culture podcast, “On One With Angela Rye,” according to Fox News.
In October, she spoke at Benedict College during a criminal justice forum along with fellow Democratic hopefuls Julian Castro, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, according to Fox News.
Earlier this year, Warren announced her proposals for tackling higher education’s biggest issues, which included the underfunding of HBCUs, a plan for universal free public college, and the cancellation of student loan debt, she wrote on April 22 in a post for Medium.
Warren recently endorsed by Black Womxn For, a group of prominent Black women organizers from across the country.
Those interested in attending the event on Nov. 21, which is open to the public and begins at 6 p.m. EST in the L.S. Epps Gymnasium, must RSVP.
