An Introduction to Black Feminism

Online | Free
Brooklyn, NY-based Footnotes & Indexes is hosting a free, monthlong, virtual class on Black Feminism starting July 5th, we’ll not only discuss weekly assigned readings written by Black thinkers, but we’ll also review how Black Feminist theories can empower our daily lives.
This online discussion will include foundational essays by feminist foremothers such as Audre Lorde and Beverly Smith and a short writing exercise intended to help you personally connect to the text.
This reading-intensive intro-class, a safe space for us to speak freely and support one another, is designed for Black women (both cis and trans) curious about intersectional feminism and interested in learning the history behind racial and sexual oppressions that persists today.
Attendance in all four classes are encouraged. While the course and materials are free, a one-time, non-refundable minimum donation of $20 via Venmo is welcome.
NB: This is a recurring event, concluding July 26th.
