The Institute for Public Health is supporting WashU’s new Center for the Study of Race, Ethnicity & Equity (CRE2) as an institutional partner by helping fund its Black Girlhood Studies Lab.

According to the lab’s webpage:

“The Black Girlhood Studies Lab examines the lives of Black girls historically and ethnographically in community-centered ways. Black girlhood studies has recently emerged as an undisciplined field where there is not an exclusive canon, but it is an interdisciplinary, multi-method, and discursively expansive mode of knowledge production and activism. In this lab, we have three primary scholarly and community-centered activities.”

We welcome the new center to WashU and are happy to support their ambitious work!
