Hip Hop Feminism Workshop and Dance Party: A Benefit for the Feminist Press
"Black feminism taught us to love ourselves, to fight for our revolution, and to prioritize our own freedom. Hip hop gave us something to bob our heads and shake our hips to. Both were essential parts of the constructions of our Blackgirl selves and lives, and we refused to give up either." —The Crunk Feminist Collection
Join the Feminist Press for an evening celebrating hip hop feminism and joyful defiance!
Learn about the hip hop feminist revolution from Crunk Feminist Collective members Dr. Brittney Cooper, Dr. Susana Morris, and Dr. Robin Boylorn in discussion, moderated by FP's own Jamia Wilson.
