What does “woke” really mean? How does it relate to UU’s first principle involving respect for all human beings? How did it come to be a four-letter-word? Estella will talk about the history of this “dirty word” and about how we might respond to its use to control our speech.
Estella Lauter helped to establish Minors in Women Studies and American Indian Studies UWGB, where she also taught courses in African American literature and in Ethnic Diversity for public-school teachers (1971-94). After retiring from UW Oshkosh as Professor Emerita, she offered many classes in literature by women for The Clearing Winter Program, for which she received the Hawthorne (check) Award in 2022.
