Event description
Radiating Black~Puerto Rican~Feminist Studies from the City University of New York to the Americas and the Caribbean

About this Event

Wendy's Subway is pleased to present Radiating Black~Puerto Rican~Feminist Studies from the City University of New York to the Americas and the Caribbean, a series of public programs organized by Conor Tomás Reed. This residency will share archives and learning/organizing lessons on the entwined legacies of Black~Puerto Rican~Feminist Studies and movements at CUNY in the 1960s and 70s, in order to nourish bridges between community organizers, cultural workers, educators, and students in the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America.

These radiant histories will be broadcast through a three-month series of seven online public dialogues on the lives of Toni Cade Bambara, June Jordan, and Audre Lorde; explorations in Black~Puerto Rican~Third World Feminist Studies at CUNY now; histories of how CUNY movements created Open Admissions and Ethnic Studies; and present efforts to decolonize CUNY and New York City.
