Black Joy Resistance (Women of African Descent Only)
Time & Location
About the Event
Through the lens of intersectionality, this workshop will honor Africana women writers who have laid the foundation for resistance and radical joy. We will engage in meditation, introspective writing exercises, examine multi-genre works by Africana women writers, and enrapture ourselves in joy as liberation praxis.
