Standing Flat Footed:
Black Femmes, Girls and Women’s Reclamation of Health and Healing
We organize this symposium to create a space for Black femmes, girls and women across African diasporas to reconnect with our authentic selves through love, healing, and intimacy. We seek to harness the creative energy necessary to redefine the terms under which we live, claim our power to envision and build a new future for ourselves and our generations. We call on you to join us in challenging false narratives and histories about Black women, “talking back” to discourses that position Black women as “other”, repudiating colonialist and racist definitions of Black womanhood, and reconceptualizing Black female and femme bodies in ways that honor and uplift Blackness.
