On Tuesday, April 9, 2013 Dillard University and the SGA will host a special presentation entitled “Bury the Ratchet”  with writer, stylist and image activist Michaela Angela Davis. The campaign, aimed to improve the depiction of African American women in media,  specifically targets Black women who live in Atlanta, Ga., because of reality shows such as “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

According to Davis, when people encounter African-American women from Atlanta, “the first image that comes to mind is mean, gold-digging women. It has become completely evident that there has been a brand of women from Atlanta that are adverse to what most of these women are like. Which is why Davis is starting this campaign, “The goal is to get the spotlight off the ratchetness and on the successful women in Atlanta.”

The event, part of SpringFest 2013, is free and open to the public and will take place in the PSB, in Georges Auditorium at 7 p.m.
