    Ain't I A Woman: Importance of Addressing Race Within the Womxn's Movement

    An official part of the SXSW International Women’s Day Celebration.

    Sojourner Truth delivered her “Ain’t I A Woman?” speech in 1851 + over 150 years later, womxn of color are still asking the same question. The feminist movement has progressed but the racial divide within the movement has not. Many initiatives are still made by + for white women to the detriment or exclusion of womxn of color. This panel addresses why + how feminism must address race and the impact of failing to do so.

    This event is part of Transcending Time, a theme that the Black Girl Magik collective explored and invited the community to investigate with us through a practice of communal healing and coalition building.

    Transcending Time

    “Transcending Time” is a voyage into a future where Black identity is unfettered by a predetermined architecture. It is a visualization exercise exploring the texture, pattern, sound and rhythm of Black possibility. Who do we become when healing from trauma is decentralized? We are creating a ceremony of self-authorization. We are giving ourselves permission to reimagine what was, what is and what can be.

    Reclaiming Pleasure

    "Reclaiming Pleasure" is the assertion of sexual power, alongside a period of recovery. It is a Black woman finding strength in her sensuality and grounding autonomy in the realms of pleasure and desire. It is the rejection of standards set on our ancestors and the distinction between agency and objectification.

    Returning Home

    “Returning Home” is an exploration back to lands, rituals and traditions that we have always known. It is voyaging and feeling at home as soon as you step foot on the ground. It is hearing music and your soul perceiving the frequencies. It is seeing a familiar face and knowing that somehow you have met before. “Returning Home” is a return to self.
