Join Us In A Praise Song for Black Feminists

When as women we honor each other, we commit acts of resistance and liberation. On the one-year anniversary of the Black Women's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, we will honor a cross-generation ofBlack feminists on whose great shoulders we stand: those who continue to put their lives on the line today for Black women and girls and those who are the keepers of a new and powerful era of truth, justice, healing and transformation
