Brown Girl-FriendlY Events

From Nannie Helen Burroughs to Lucy Diggs Slowe to Gloria Richardson to manifestos such as “A Call to Negro Women," Black queer, transgender, and cisgender women have always been on the forefront of the Black radical tradition, especially in the District formerly known as “Chocolate City” and in Maryland and Virginia.

In discussing the pioneering and revolutionary resistance of Black women activist-leaders of the past, this panel engages with Black women and non-binary activists who, in spite of gentrification and displacement, are continuing the tradition and legacy of Black feminist movement building in the DMV.
