Session Information

Description: Panelists address how black feminist practices help us think about social justice, examining how we can use black women’s bold and audacious language to create and organize toward the end of the world as we know it. In the words of Octavia Butler, “All that we touch, we change. All that we change, changes us.” The speakers interrogate black women’s rhetorical practices for strategies toward change.
