Writing is Resisting: Literature by Black Women

Friday 15 October 2021

Join writers Lucía Asué Mbomío Rubio and Yolanda Arroyo Pizarro in Conversation with Dayana Catá discussing about black women literature.

 

We are experiencing a great boost in literature written by Afro-descendant women in the publishing industry. The Black Lives Matters movement and the upheaval caused by racist attacks in 2020 has been a driving force around the world for a bigger presence of black female authors. But this mainstream earthquake has been forged through decades of struggle by many black women. This talk is an attempt to reveal just one of the many routes to discover the literature written by Afro-descendant women, their own language, their common themes and their role in the Afro-feminist struggle.
