      Rose from Mamaland speaks to us about their recently completed container project, and their plans for a new project. The container project, the first for the newly formed Mamaland Foundation, involved sending a shipping container full of hospital, educational, work and everyday items to Juba, South Sudan, from Melbourne Australia, with many items kindly donated from the local community. Now Mamaland plans to reopen a kitchen in Juba to provide employment, training, and hope for women. Once up and running, it would also have the capacity to provide meals for homeless children.

              Decolonial summerschool 2014 Middelburg. Registration of the performance We refuse! I've placed 11 historybooks from a white european perspective on tables and asked the students to delete the text with black markers and dissect the images with scalpel knives. I wanted them to be meticulous and be conscious and in control while working on the books. While they were producing gaps in history; I was filling them with my spoken word; Daughter of Diaspora. It was an act of violence and at the same time an act of healing. It was a very emotional ritual of decolonizing ones preconceptions about the sacred books which are a product of modernity. The responses of the students were beautiful and gave me so much in return.

              • Tina Campt: Black Feminist Futures and the Practice of Fugitivity

                What kinds of ‘practice’ create possibilities for new feminist futures? How do our everyday engagements with power complicate how we understand feminist struggle? This talk uses a black feminist conception of practice to think beyond conventional notions of resistance as the primary model for understanding the relationship of marginalized subjects to power. Focusing on archival photographs of black communities in diaspora, it explores the quotidian practices of black subjects whose micro-labors of struggle are frequently overlooked in an emphasis on collective and individual acts of resistance. The concept of “fugitivity” or “taking flight” emerges as a signature idiom of black diasporic culture and a meaningful pathway for realizing the aspirations of futurity articulated by black feminist theory. The Helen Pond McIntyre '48 lecture took place on October 7, 2014. Professor Campt was introduced by BCRW Director Janet Jakobsen to welcome her publicly as BCRW’s new Co-Director and to celebrate the inauguration of BCRW’s new Fellows Program.

Martin, Jr., author of Black Against Empire: The History and Politics of the Black Panther Party, and Dr. Rickey Vincent, author of Party Music: The Inside Story of the Black Panthers' Band and How Black Power Transformed Soul Music.
