SORT BY Relevancy
In this virtual roundtable organized by me, Kathryn Buford, and Suey Park, we invited women of color to discuss coming together to consider #solidarity and feminisms across communities of color, as well as recent issues and challenges we face as women of color dealing with racism, colorism, classism, sexism, heterosexism/homophobia, and transphobia. What does solidarity mean to us, and what does feminism mean to us? How do we build a united front ready and able to support each other across cultural communities?
Kathryn is a writer, and sociology PhD student at University of Maryland, College Park. Her current research explores social entrepreneurship, women’s art and emancipatory knowledge across the African diaspora.
Suey Park is a free-lance writer from Chicago who now lives in Colorado. She is the organizer behind the Twitter hashtag #NotYourAsianSidekick.
Cherie Ann Turpin is a writer and an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of the District of Columbia.
It's Friday the 13th!! OK, so, if you miss this show because you're idea of saving a few bucks, or just due to poor planning, was to go out for Valentine's dinner tonight...on FRIDAY the 13TH...you're doing it wrong...seriously. So trust me, you don't want to miss this, we have a GREAT show lined up. Stevie can't make it this evening due to sick evils, so Jodi and Di, hosts of the Red Whine Show will be stepping in to keep Hammy in Line.
First up, we will be joined by blogger Lady K (@SouthernKeeks) to discuss the she-woman man haters that want to ruin Valentine's Day for everyone else (probably because they can't get dates), and they hate men, and pink, and misogyny, and did I mention, men. She wrote a great article you should read before the show (yes, there will be a test). https://medium.com/@LadyK/v-day-feminisms-response-to-feb-14-38fb090a3541
Later Tami Natz (@TamiNantz) will stop by to talk about her upcoming humanitarian / missions trip back to Africa. This is a great cause that we are happy to able to help her raise funds for. Also, there are T-shirts :)
We're also have lots of news, stories about people so off the grid the government doesn't know who they are (and no, they didn't come across the border), and of course, in general, we'll just have a good time. So grab a cold one and join us at the bar, it's Friday night and we are Getting Hammered!
The Women’s Center for Creative Work (WCCW) was founded in 2013 by Katie Bachler, Kate Johnston, and Sarah Williams as a collaboration of Los Angeles-based women engaged in conversations about contemporary feminisms of all kinds.
Through a variety of inclusive programming the WCCW strives to feed a dialogue surrounding feminism, femininity, womanhood and the creative impulse.
Without a permanent space, the WCCW is engaged in a Year Long Laboratory, hosting a nomadic series of workshops and pop-ups, as well as The Women’s Dinner, which is the cornerstone of the WCCW.
Show host: Kara Tomé, GYST Radio Manager, independent curator, and founder of ArtSite Projects.
