Black feminist movements globally are at the forefront of some of the most important social changes of our time. From the U.S, to Nigeria, to Colombia and the U.S, Black women and non-binary people have a long tradition of contributing to social movements for justice, peace and equality. Black feminist theory is also shaping policy and thought. Yet, Black feminism is often not considered a global conversation, worthy of a particular space for discussion, nor are Black feminist movements adequately resourced. This session argues, from an intergenerational panel of Black feminists in philanthropy, policy making, activism and academia, that Black feminisms are the antidote to a world facing multiple crises. Moderated and hosted by the first ever global Black Feminist Fund, we will hear from our speakers why that is, what Black feminisms are doing to change that and how Black women and feminist agendas are a critical international and global issue we should all be thinking about.
