Ain’t I A Woman

November 23, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm GMT

The Ain’t I A Woman Collective is a black feminist organisation, which aims to centre the voices of women with African ancestry in Europe and beyond. We believe that there is a need for more creative spaces for black women’s voices, writing and well-being, and work to constantly carve out such space.

Academically speaking, black feminism….
The overarching aim of the event is  to explore, through discussion, whether black feminist academic books have a role in the black feminist agenda of young black women. If not, what next of academic books on black feminism? If yes, how are they used and are there ways to increase usage or do the books (content) need changing?
At this event, the group will have a chance to discuss the role academia has had in the development and evolution of black feminism, whether academic books on the subject have been constructive in building inclusiveness among women of African ancestry and if not, should we be reinventing the discourse or starting a new one.
We hope to follow up the event with reading group based on the information we collect from the event.
The event is open to the public. We work in creating a safe place for women of African ancestry. We use that term broadly to cover all – whether they identify as African, Afro-Latina, Caribbean, part of the diaspora or a mix of others – identity is up to the individual.
