December Tool-Kit: Black Feminist Perspectives

Each month we will be posting a new digital tool-kit with reading materials and resources to aid in counter-movements and the enhancement of critical media literate and de-colonial perspectives. This month, we make room to amplify the words and works of black women – with an emphasis on Europe – in order to promote Afropean feminist and womanist narratives and efforts. Thinking more globally, this tool-kit offers historical resources as well as materials on festivals, art, scholarly work and activism.
