Economy of Liberation: Cultivating Black Feminist Lives

Imagining Blackness into the future is our foundation for liberation. In this session we will explore how the process of building Black feminist collectives is a modality for living. We will explore Black women's history of alternative economies, and the practice of mutual aid and cultural survivalism. We are our own greatest resource and our stories are of value and are valued by our community. We will share our stories to support each other, to heal, and to enact regenerative practices of resource sharing, rooted in an economy of liberation.
