Rethinking Transnational and Intersectional Feminism: The Combahee River Collective Statement and the Global Refugee Crisis
Becky Thompson joins scholar/activists Diane Harriford, Tricia Yi-Chun Lin, and Zenaida Peterson as we talk about the continuing significance of Black feminist activism in the face of the refugee crisis in the Middle East. Baltimore Hilton Hotel, Maryland, November 17th. Promises to be a lively discussion.
This roundtable discussion: “Rethinking Transnational and Intersectional Feminism: The Combahee River Collective Statement and the Global Refugee Crisis,” will take place at the National Women’s Studies Association’s 40th Conference on Friday, November 17th, (8:00-9:15, bright and early!). This roundtable is one of two sponsored by Frontiers: A Journal of Women’s Studies which is publishing essays to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Combahee River Collective Statement and its ongoing significance for feminist praxis. Our panel will discuss how the Combahee Statement (which, in the 1970s, named intersectional politics as key to comprehensive organizing) continues to be foundational for our activist and intellectual journeys.
