September 28-29th, 2016
5:30-9:30pm Eastern Time
Inspired by Akasha Gloria Hull’s foundational work Soul Talk: The New Spirituality of African American Women, this 2-day online intensive invites participants to engage an unstoppable and unending tradition of magic within the context of the political and literary legacy of black feminism. Featuring Sista Docta Alexis Pauline Gumbs’s intimate archival elaborations and ritual prompts drawn from some of the most untaught work by Alice Walker, Lucille Clifton, Sonia Sanchez, Toni Cade Bambara, Alexis De Veaux and other black feminist artists identified by Hull’s work, this course will encourage participants to renew, recontextualize and reaffirm their own magic as a crucial resource for wide-reaching political transformation.
This course is open to anyone, and priority will be given to black women in general and other comrades who know how we do (aka allies who have participated in Brilliance Remastered or Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind spaces in the past.)
registration for the whole intensive is sliding scale $185-250. (Installment payments available upon request.) Email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your goals for the course by September 25th.
