Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

Dr. Olivia Hooker talks about surviving The Tulsa Oklahoma Race Riot of 1921 and becoming the first African-American woman to enlist in the U.S. Coast Guard during World War 2.  We also hear from Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins who proposed and helped pass a legislative resolution in the New York State Senate honoring Dr. Hooker for her achievements and contributions to both the women’s and the civil rights movements.
