Saturday Dec 3, 2-4pm Eastern
At this moment, many of us are thinking about Cuba. We are thinking about Assata. We are thinking about what it means to be in solidarity with, in critical accountability with, in revolutionary reference to, contemporary Cuba. This one-session online course is inspired by writing by US based Black Feminists (including US based Black Feminists of Caribbean heritage) about Cuba as inspiration, challenge and context. Based on work by Toni Cade Bambara, Alexis De Veaux, Audre Lorde, Assata Shakur, Farah Jasmine Griffin, Cheryll Greene and more, this is a space to draw on earlier Black Feminist writings and praxis as we individually collectively face this moment. This is not a strategy session, it is an interactive writing workshop designed to offer a space of reflection and historical references to take into collective and organizational work on this issue. There is no advance reading required for the course, but all participants will get a bibliography for further reading.
This course is not only for US based Black Feminists. All are welcome. However the source texts will be drawing specifically from US based Black Feminist writing and activism
