BAM! Sistahood! Seminars: Black Feminist Activism in the North East
Thu, October 27, 2016, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM BST
The BAM! Sistahood! Project, in partnership with the Angelou Centre and Breeze Creatives, are hosting a series of seminars that focus on Black and Minority women's contribution to the social, cultural and political landscape of the North East. Over the course of three seminars we will discuss and further unravel key questions about heritage and how it is constructed and often mythologised and the part it has to play in the complex identities of individuals, families, communities, cities, regions and nations. The seminars aim to raise essential questions about heritage and culture in these rapidly changing and often politically fragile times.
Seminar 3: Black Feminist Activism in the North East: A Herstory
Black Feminist activism has been challenging and shaping communities for generations, creating economic, social, cultural, political change for all in the North East of England, and yet remains very poorly documented or recognised. An intergenerational panel of self defined Black Feminist activists will reflect upon and discuss an unknown chapter of the region's social herstory and ongoing social justice struggles. In this seminar we will re-cover the hidden feminist herstories and personal anecdotes of some of the region's most radical women of colour.
