Welcome to the Black Lady Caucus

Led by The School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Arts Administration graduate student, Jaleesa Wells, The Black Lady Caucus began as a weekly open discussion forum about black women in today’s society. From media representation to hyper-visibility, we investigate and contemplate current events and popular culture.

Educated and motivated to expand the boundaries of the box in which black women are continuously placed within, the challenge of the Black Lady Caucus is to actively confront issues that appear to be intangible and yet directly impact each and every one of us.

The Black Lady Caucus aims to combine the ideas, creations, and personal experiences of participating members in a critical discourse and to empower that network.
