The Barbara Karkabi Memorial Endowment

Journalist Barbara Karkabi, a longtime member of the UH Friends of Women’s Studies board, organized and moderated the first Living Archives panel in 1997, centered on 70s Feminism in Houston. This endowment was established in her memory by some of her many friends from across Houston and will support The Barbara Karkabi Living Archives Series and research on women’s stories in WGSS.
