Founder Of ‘Me Too’ Movement To Host Virtual Lecture November 2

Tarana Burke, the creator of the “Me Too” movement, is hosting a Zoom lecture for Penn State students at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 2.

Molly Countermine and Marinda Harrell-Levy, representatives from the College of Human Development and Family Studies, will join Burke in an online panel to discuss insights on racial justice, anti-violence, and gender equity.

Burke will also discuss her book, “You Are Your Best Thing: Vulnerability, Shame Resilience, and the Black Experience” with attendees. The anthology explores Black peoples’ experiences in the United States amid oppression. Activist and professor Brené Brown co-wrote the book with Burke.

Burke visited Penn State in 2018 to discuss the Me Too movement’s sudden surge in popularity on social media and its origins. Burke said that she makes an effort to attend universities to dispel misconceptions and to spread the importance of the Me Too movement.
