Monday, September 20, 2021


Girl is NOT a 4 Letter Word founder, Cindy Whitehead,  will be moderating and speaking on a panel at the Smithsonian's National Youth Summit this Tuesday 9/21.

Joining her will be 70's pro skateboarder Judi Oyama and Olympian skateboarder, Jordyn Barratt.

It's shaping up to be a great panel so we hope you will join us!

The live program Sept. 21 will feature talks, workshops and discussions with scholars, historians and activists. Among the speakers and presenters are Minnijean Brown-Trickey, one of the Little Rock Nine teens who worked to desegregate Central High School; professional skateboarders Cindy Whitehead and Judi Oyama; Marcia Chatelain, professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University; and Katherine Ott, curator at the National Museum of American History. This year’s Summit will pull from the content and scholarship of the museum’s exhibition “Girlhood (It’s complicated).”

Some 4,000 students are expected to participate in virtual discussions facilitated by their educators, the Smithsonian and Smithsonian Affiliate museums nationwide. Currently, 12 Smithsonian Affiliate museums have registered to host virtual Regional Summits, providing online viewing parties and supplementing the activities with their own programming for students in their local communities.
