When Alexis told me that there’s a fierce community of feminists in Durham, NC, she wasn’t playing. Thanks to the new Google buzz (about which I’m not totally sure how I feel), I got wind of the Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist’s Mind. It’s essentially an intergenerational school of Black feminism, hosting “survival schools” (the ones in February focus on June Jordan), potluck dinners that preserve and push forward Black feminists’ legacy, and the School of our Lorde, a group of Thursday sessions studying the great Audre.
There are some amazing events coming up in February, like an Audre Lorde birthday celebration and poetry performance and a discussion with Mai’a Williams on Black feminist solidarity in the Middle East. Email here to find out more.
