Cohen serves on the board of the Arcus Foundation and is a past board member of the Audre Lorde Project, Kitchen Table: Women of Color Press, and the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at CUNY.
She was a founding member of Black AIDS Mobilization (BAM!) and also has served as an active member in organizations such as the Black Radical Congress, African American Women in Defense of Ourselves, and Ella’s Daughters.
In addition to Cohen’s lecture, Gustavus will end its Martin Luther King Day celebration with a performance by Minneapolis-based Mixed Blood Theatre at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall.
Mixed Blood’s “Dr. King’s Dream” celebrates the life and career of King through his own letters, sermons, books and speeches, including the “I Have a Dream” speech.
