Professor Mojúbàolú Olúfúnké Okome from the Department of Political Science led a panel discussion at the CUNY School of Law about the Boko Haram abduction of 276 teenage school girls from the Chibok Girls Secondary School that occurred on April 14, 2014.

 Ten years later, 91 of the women, remain in Boko Haram captivity. Professor Okome, who co-founded #BringBackOurGirlsNYC, hosted the anniversary event titled “Remembering the Chibok Girls: A Decade of Resilience” on April 14.

 The event, which was co-sponsored by the Institute on Gender, Law, and Transformative Peace at CUNY School of Law, and the Departments of Political Science, Africana Studies, Puerto Rican and Latino Studies at Brooklyn College, as well as its Black Faculty and Staff and Women’s Center, included a panel discussion, keynote address, performance, and a tribute to those abducted.
