Alicia Garza – November 27, 2017

Alicia Garza along with Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors, have helped to transform what was once a viral hashtag and social media force into a national and international grassroots organization. Born out of the mass demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri and around the U.S. Black Lives Matter has become an essential ray of hope in this new wave of resistance to police terrorism, and in the fight against white supremacy becoming an important beacon for change in the global human rights movement. Today we will hear a talk by Alicia Garza given at U.C. Berkeley recently about the importance of feminism, especially black feminism the need for all politics to be intersectional, and about BLM today and the urgent need to fight threats ranging from fascism and extra-judicial racial terror to white supremacy. This event was sponsored by the Gender and Women’s Studies at U.C. Berkeley.
