Acquanda will be across the water, on the Kitsap Peninsula in Bremerton in a few weeks, facilitating this course/community class. EXPLORING BLACK FEMINISMS is a 4-hour workshop designed to be concise, yet multifaceted and concrete with the information presented for those who are interested in and who want to know more about the history of history Black feminisms, what they entail, and also understand what a Black feminist-centric perspective tend to look like abroad. It’s sponsored, in small part, by the S/BFL, so it’s open to anyone who’s interested.
Here’s what’s is all about:
With Black History Month rapidly coming to a close, what specifically can you say you learned about Black feminism? Unfortunately, for many people it’s not all that much. This is because a lot of the work Black women and Black feminists have produced to shine a light on centering various important aspects is too often overlooked. But Black feminism is significant! And in order to have a greater understanding of the history of Black women and their quest for justice and equality overall, an understanding of Black feminism is necessary.
During this gathering we will host a dynamic event that details the various aspects of Black feminism. You’ll learn about these and increase your understanding on how this critical component has worked in making this society — and others — a place for justice and equity.
You’ll be introduced to various Black feminists including Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Angela Davis, and many others. Some topics we’ll cover are Black women before the Civil War, Reproductive Justice (such as birth, breastfeeding, contraception & abortion), Family life, LGBTQ, Natural Hair and more.
Our schedule will include a presentation on these legacies. We’ll also have readings, group discussions, games (with PRIZES!!) and opportunity to build community.
Hearty-ish snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided.
Bremerton is just a ferry ride away.
