a “kitchen table conversation” with Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Paris Hatcher, Shana griffin, Savannah Shange

moderated by kai lumumba barrow

June marks the 152nd anniversary of the Combahee River action in South Carolina. In honor of Harriet Tubman and the Combahee River Collective , five black feminist artist and organizers in New Orleans gather in a home to hold conversation centering the 152nd anniversary of the Combahee River action that freed over 750 slaves, the current upsurge in the Black liberation movement, and the continuum of Black women’s struggle. Centering conversations on Harriet Tubman, Black liberation and the approaching 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we examine current strategies and tactics in our movement from a Black feminist perspective. What does black feminism looks like in the 21st century and what are the possibilities of black liberation (from a black feminist lens)?
