Oya’s Daughters: Connecting Black African Feminisms Around the World

Thursday, March 25, 12:00pm - 1:30pm (EDT)

In honor of Women’s History Month, The Africa Center presents a conversation among an incredible group of women on their perspectives on Black feminisms within the African Diaspora.

In today’s ever-polarized sociopolitical and cultural environment, even the historically connected seminal movements of Black American, Black British, and Black Afrodiasporic feminism are shifting further apart. Yet no matter where Black women find themselves in the world, feminists of African heritage are in a mutual struggle.

Oya, the Yoruba goddess, revered in all parts of the Black Atlantic – from Nigeria to Brazil to Cuba to the UK and the US – offers a symbolic and political language through which Black feminists everywhere can reinvigorate the movement.

Join leading Black feminists from across the African Diaspora in a critical discussion to explore similarities and differences of perspectives in their part of the world. The virtual program will provide a space for Black feminist voices from several continents to explore the challenges and opportunities of connecting across geographic boundaries to improve the collective experiences of Black women across the world.
