The Black Feminisms Forum is a space for Black and Afrodescendant feminists to come together from diverse sectors, regions and identities across Africa and the Diaspora to explore, dialogue, debate, and share the intersections of our struggles and activisms. Convening Black Feminisms at the AWID 2016 Forum is thus a historic opportunity fulfilling a long-awaited need.
Objectives of the BFF:
To convene a dynamic network of Black feminist activists, scholars, educators, artists, writers, and cultural workers committed to exploring, celebrating and amplifying diverse voices and perspectives;
To facilitate deep dialogue and share knowledge, tools, and strategies for Black feminist organizing and with other movements and allies;
To contribute to building and strengthening an ongoing, transnational, inter-generational movement community of Black feminists;
To collaborate and build strong relationships of solidarity, and effective coalitions between Black feminists and other movements.
