Time: 3-4pm EST

sx editorial assistant Alyssa James will co-facilitate "Honoring the Ancestors: Black Feminist Citational Praxis, an interactive workshop" alongside her Zora's Daughters podcast co-host Brendane Tynes as part of Strategies for Survival: Black Feminist Manifestos. This series by Weeksville Heritage Center is an online public program engaging with a series of historical and contemporary manifestos resonant with the explosive reality we experience now. Zakiya Collier, a Project Archivist for the Weeksville Heritage Center, will also co-facilitate the event. 

Written by Black feminist artists, activists, and writers and performed by Weeksville community members, these texts point to circumstances that are unacceptable and in need of change. But most importantly, they propose pathways to move forward in order to overcome the status quo and create new realities. In the midst of political uncertainty and a physically isolating pandemic, these statements offer visions that can help us connect with one another and transcend what feels like a never-ending crisis.
