LIVE @ 9am “Images In the River: Black Girls Dialogue”

30 Mar

Good morning CFC community,

After our Feminism 101 for Girls report many asked for more information about the organization and implementation of the workshop.  Well Tami Harris and Julia Stevens of the parenting blog Love Isn’t Enough have arranged an online discussion with five panelists to discuss how to introduce feminism to black girls.  The panelists include educators and activists: Mashadi Matabane, Bianca Laureano, Asha French, Sheri Davis-Faulkner, and Ruth Nicole Brown. Bios for the panelists are listed on the Love Isn’t Enough website. 

Join us for what promises to be a fantastic and necessary discussion.  We look forward to “hearing” from you.  If you have difficulties accessing the discussion from this site click here.

    This is great! I was disappointed I wasn’t able to join you all in Atlanta and see things in real time. I’m sure this will be so helpful! Unfortunately I’ll be in a meeting from 9 to noon so I’ll miss the whole thing. Will we be able to access the panel later?

    Thanks for an interesting experience earlier today. I was there, although I had to leave for an Afrikan film screening halfway thru, and I actually picked up some fresh ideas on approaches to gender discussions with young Afrikans!

    Looking forward to next time (hoping there would be one)!

    @ ladybuddha. You can access the archived conversation by following the link in the post for coveritlive. We hope to have you online next time.

    @chimaobi. Thanks for joining the discussion and I am happy to talk more about work I have done with black girls and boys collectively. Sometimes doing stuff with both of them together raises gender myths that they hold that need to be discussed between them with a facilitator and I know we need to do more of that. We would love to hear more about your work.
