Saturday 2nd June 2018, 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM @ UCL Institute of Education (Room 802), 20 Bedford Way, London WC1H 0AL
“Caring for myself is not Self-Indulgence, it’s Self-Preservation and that is an act of Political warfare” – Audre Lorde
The Black Women’s Forum UK is a safe space to share, empower and engage with women of African, Asian, Arab and Caribbean descent living in the UK.
It exists as a forum to allow for a different form of empowerment, particularly for women because not only do we face issues with sexism, patriarchy, misogyny, but questions of race are just as paramount in the complex discourse. Borrowing from Audre Lourde, ‘at times, the myth of sameness can actually be the thing which destroys us’. For this reason, we recognise the need and importance of Black self-organisation.
So come along and join us for an afternoon of conversation, tea and coffee (light snacks included) as we talk about self-care and healing.
Space is limited. Please RSVP as soon as possible at Eventbrite
