Combahee River Collective Mixtape: Black Feminist Sonic Dissent Then & Now
a panel discussion with Daphne Brooks, Kara Keeling, & Jacqueline Stewart
November 15, Wednesday

Kara Keeling, Cinema & Media Studies and American Studies & Ethnicity, University of Southern California, Dornsife

Join BCRW in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Combahee River Collective Statement, the radical Black feminist manifesto completed in 1977 that laid out key tenets of intersectional theory and social justice reform. Taking the works of wide range of artists as our point of departure—from musicians such as the Knowles Sisters and Nina Simone to visual artists like Carrie Mae Weems and the L.A. Rebellion filmmakers—we aim to build a bridge from this historic document to the present and future of Black feminism. Audience participation is key, as we invite all attendees to find new directions in which music and image will allow us to carry forth the manifesto’s cogent wisdom.
