CCS Webinar: The Organizing Principle - Understanding the Erasure of Black Women in Liberation Movements from enslaved insurrections to Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter

Facilitators: Danford Chibvongodze & Andries Motau
Speaker: Maria Martin
Date: Wednesday 26 August
Time: 16:00-17:00 SA Time

Black women have long faced silencing and erasure in broader society as well as in the Black community in the US. This erasure of Black women began from the time of their arrival in the US, with the devaluing of their lives under Eurocentric principles of culture, and has been perpetrated in the more recent movement against anti-Blackness. Nonetheless, Black women have been central to every movement for Black Liberation from enslaved insurrections to Civil Rights and Black Lives Matter. This webinar will pose some thoughts on how it is that Black women can be central to the workings of these movements but not receive due recognition in them.
