Anita Hill

Advocate for Civil and Human Rights; Author of "Speaking Truth to Power"

 Anita Hill Biography

Anita Hill, University Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women's Studies at Brandeis University, is a vital leader in both the civil rights and women’s rights movements. In 1993, Anita made sexual harassment in the workplace a national issue when she testified that Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas had committed sexual harassment against her. Today, Anita continues to push the envelope in pursuit of women’s and civil rights, teaming up with MacArthur Genius Award-winning artist Mark Branford and prominent academics all over the country.

Anita is collaborating with Mark Branford to create a 400-foot cycloramic painting in the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. The painting will display publicly for the first time the lost text of civil rights activist Myrtle Evers-Williams’s would-be speech at the iconic 1963 “March on the Mall,” titled, “Tribute to Negro Women Fighters for Freedom.” Anita serves as Branford’s liaison to Mrs. Evers-Williams, engaging her in the creative process and seeking her blessing for the installation.

On the front of women’s rights, Anita is spearheading “Restoring the Vision”, a project to revive awareness of Title IX, the crucial law mandating equal education and employment opportunities for women. Anita will speak at businesses, universities including Radcliffe and leadership conferences including the Simmons leadership program that strive for gender equity. Combining these lectures with scholarship presenting stories of women in the academy, Anita will address the challenges women face in reaching workplace parity and highlight ways to increase women’s access to higher education.

“Restoring the Vision” will kickstart research and reform while empowering women to stand up for equal pay and education for years to come.

Anita keeps alive the legacy she bravely began in the early 1990s. She inspires the hundreds of students whom she has taught as University Professor at Brandeis and thousands more who follow her example in creating a better society in America. As long as women and minorities face discrimination in the U.S., for Anita Hill, there is more work to be done.

    We are pleased to report that the Anita Hill program was accomplished without a hitch on our end. We really appreciated Taylor Brook's assistance in the initial stages of our search for a speaker and the tenacity Taylor employed in identifying speakers that could accommodate the date of our event. However, we were dismayed by the inflexibility exhibited by the logistics coordinators who subsequently handled the process. We initially hoped to bring Ms. Hill to our campus at least an hour prior to the program to spend some quality time engaging with students however, that time was eliminated from the schedule as we were told that Anita Hill had limited time available. Additionally, we requested the ability to livestream the event to our regional campuses, law school and medical and dental schools as for the first time the university held only one MLK program. We have been working very hard to build a true sense of community with the students, faculty, and staff at those locations. It was indicated that we should have addressed that in the contract and as a result, we offered to do an amendment. Unfortunately, after a series of discussions, which we were told were escalated, it was communicated to us that Anita Hill would not allow live streaming or recording. However, in the midst of conversation on the day of the event, Ms. Hill stated that she was never asked about her willingness to engage with students nor about streaming the event. She noted she always agrees to streaming and recording for internal use given that the talk would have significant archival importance and could have been an enriching educational tool. We would also like to note that there were multiple errors in the Anita Hill bio supplied by All American Entertainment including the misspelling the names of collaborators with Ms. Hill and incorrect dates. Ms. Hill also indicated to us that she has made All American Entertainment aware of those errors in the past. Our initial impression of All American Entertainment was extremely positive because of our interactions with Taylor Brooks. Taylor's drive and attention to detail enhanced our optimism with the process. We hope that with any future collaborations with All American Entertainment, our experience with Taylor will be mirrored by the rest of the team throughout the process.

  • We host many guests at our Agency as we sponsor our Speaker Series annually. Ms. Hill was so gracious to accept our invitation and deliver such an inspiring and thoughtful speech. [We would like to] thank her profusely for capping our Harassment Awareness Campaign with her story and her insights on what has changed over the last 20+ years. She shared that she customizes her speeches to her audience. That was so clear when she shared her experiences with the public misunderstanding and with heavy Congressional oversight, both key dimensions of our current situation.
