PRA Archive #: 

Actualities from Barnard College's conference "Celebration of Black Womanhood" held February 4-5, 1978. Tapes in Pacifica's holdings were numbered #5 and #7, indicating that several are missing. These two parts are from a panel about Black women and careers in the health sciences. Part 5 is about applying to medical school. Speakers include Jewel Hodge, Association of American Medical Colleges; Iona Lyles, Assistant for Minority Affairs at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. 

Part 7 is a continued discussion about education and training in medical professions. Includes speakers Kay Kennedy, RN, the first Black head nurse at a hospital, who talks about her experiences and work in health related fields; Audine Nelson[sp?], nutritionist, about related health careers; Rosalyn Bowser[sp?] nutritionist at the Harlem Hospital; Q&A (level on questions is very low).

Unclear if this portion was actually broadcast on WBAI. See IZ1417 for another panel from this conference.
