Remembering Barbara Karkabi

Barbara Karkabi

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, on 1970s Feminism in Houston. A passionate teller of the stories of Houstonians, Barbara especially delighted in building community through sharing the stories of immigrants and of women.

Penny Loyd, Bill & Sally Russ, Nina Andrews Karohl, Christine Attar, Andrea Georgsson, Carey Shuart, Chinhui Juhn, Holly Maffitt, Zeba Shah, Beverly Robinson, & others, some of the many friends of the late Barbara Karkabi, invite you to join them in establishing an Endowment in her Memory in the UH Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program.
