Workshop: From Intersectionality to #SayHerName

Workshop: From Intersectionality to #SayHerName - The radical love of Black feminist politics

Join this discussion, led by Jade Bentil, to delve deeper into some of the topics emerging from Kimberlé Crenshaw’s In Conversation at WOW UK 2021. From #SayHerName, to intersectionality in the current context of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter in 2020, Jade will reflect on the radical ethics of love and care that are at the heart of Black feminism and open up the conversation for wider discussion.

This session is for women and non-binary people from Black African, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx and African-American backgrounds, including those of mixed-Black heritage.
