Black Feminism In Action; Turning Pain Into Power

KPFA Women’s Magazine speaks with historian Barbara Ransby about her new book, Making All Black Lives Matter: Reimagining Freedom in the Twenty-First Century, an insider’s account of how Black feminism has anchored the movement that has transformed U.S. political culture over the last five years.
Then we speak with Susan Swan, Executive Director of VDay, and Mary Owen of Bay Area Rising about this year’s One Billion Rising/VDay event in Oakland, where they will screen City of Joy, a film about the leadership institute for sexual violence survivors in the Congo.  The film screening takes place Wednesday, February 13, at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland; it will be preceded by drumming and dancing with Afia Walking Tree and Destiny Arts, and followed by a discussion with playwright and VDay founder Eve Ensler and Christine  Schuler-Deschryver (Director of the City of Joy center and V-Day Congo). These One Billion Rising events usually sell out so get tickets now!
