WOW Workshop: The radical love of Black feminist politics

Monday 26 July 2021

From Intersectionality to #SayHerName, join this discussion, led by Jade Bentil, to delve into the radical love of Black feminist politics.

Join this discussion, led by Jade Bentil, to delve into the radical love of Black feminist politics, and other topics that emerge from Kimberlé Crenshaw’s In Conversation at WOW UK 2021. From #SayHerName, to intersectionality in the current context of Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter in 2020, Jade will reflect on the radical ethics of love and care that are at the heart of Black feminism and open up the conversation for wider discussion.

This session is for women and non-binary people from Black African, Caribbean, Afro-Latinx and African-American backgrounds, including those of mixed-Black heritage.

Whether you’re new to WOW, or you came to Jade’s session back in March 2021 – this is for you. Book early – this session has a limited capacity and will take place on Zoom as a Zoom meeting.

This session is 1.5hours long, but the room will remain open for 30 mins for anyone who’d like to continue discussions.

We’ll send you a promo code to book a free pass to watch Kimberlé Crenshaw’s in conversation as part of WOW UK 2021 in your booking confirmation email. We recommend watching the talk, but it is not compulsory for engagement with Jade’s workshop.

BSL interpretation and Live Captioning are available upon request. If you require this service, please email access@thewowfoundation.com and we will do our best to accommodate, subject to availability.

Jade Bentil is a Black feminist historian and PhD researcher at the University of Oxford. Her scholarship uses oral history methodologies to centre the experiences of women of African and African-Caribbean descent in Britain and their long history of feminist activism. Her postgraduate dissertation, Black Women Fighting Back in Thatcher’s Britain, won the 2017 Marion Sharples prize for Best Dissertation in the School of History at the University of Leeds. Jade’s debut book, REBEL CITIZEN, uses oral history interviews to explore the lived experiences of Black women who migrated to Britain following the Second World War and will be published by Allen Lane in 2022.

This event is part of WOW UK 2021 Revisited – a very special digital programme offering people worldwide a second chance to explore some of WOW’s International Women’s Day Programme of groundbreaking In Conversations and interactive workshops. There’s everything from mental health to activism during Covid, and from being a grandmother to being an artist in a pandemic (or both!).
