An Evening with Franchesca Ramsey

An Evening with Franchesca Ramsey

Saturday, June 2, 2018 at 7:30pm
Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

Franchesca Ramsey didn't set out to be an activist. Or a comedian. Or a commentator on identity, race, and culture. But then her YouTube video What White Girls Say . . . to Black Girls went viral. Twelve million views viral. Faced with an avalanche of media requests, fan letters, and hate mail, she had two choices: Jump in and make her voice heard, or step back and let others frame the conversation.

Join MTV's Decoded star Francesca Ramsey for a conversation on her experiences as an accidental activist to explore the many ways we communicate with each other—from the highs of bridging gaps and making connections, to the many pitfalls that accompany talking about race, power, sexuality, and gender in an unpredictable public space—the internet.

Plan to arrive early and stay late to enjoy the Marine's Memorial Bar and meet Francesca for a book signing after the conversation!
