podcast

A cursory look at the lives of several women intimately involved in the
fight for
human rights and self-determination of Afrikan peoples. From ante-bellum-era
lynchings to modern-day police terrorism, these sistah-warriors have used
every
method at their disposal to agitate and advocate for, and to secure the
rights of
Black people, and all
humans who are oppressed. For their ‘crime of resistance’ they have had to
pay a
heavy price – exile from their families, their homes and their
communities. In spite
of this and other hardships, these women have carried on the tradition of
resistance. Email kpfawomensmagazine@hotmail.com for a resource list on

show.
