“Daughters of the Movement”: a song in a weary throat

Saturday, November 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

From Ida B. Wells to Fannie Lou Hamer to Pauli Murray and beyond, black women have authored some of our most visionary responses to moments of political upheaval. We take Murray’s notion of “a song in a weary throat” to consider the permanence of hope and black women’s strength in historical perspective and in these times. Helping us in this necessary assessment, a group of seven African American women — “Daughters of the Movement” — will join us on Saturday, Nov. 7th at 6 PM to consider our present civic challenges, our past foundations of progressive change, and our future possibilities. The Daughters of the Movement was born in the homes of some of the last half-century’s most impactful activists and movement builders. They grew up to become critical agents of progressive change in their own right. Please join us in learning from this freedom collective and, perhaps, bringing about a world still hoped for.
