Black Radical Women in the U.S. 1910-1960 – A Study & Discussion Circle

Join a study and discussion circle focused on the contributions of Black radical women activists and theorists from the early 20th century through the Cold War era. Most of these women were affiliated with the U.S. Communist Party (CPUSA) and others were part of various socialist organizations. 

This circle will consider the backgrounds, thinking and writing of some of these leaders. We will specifically discuss the lives and contributions of Louise Thompson Patterson, Claudia Jones, Eslanda Robeson, Esther Cooper Jackson, Beulah Richardson, Marvel Cooke and Vicki Garvin.

All are invited to apply but space is limited and as such we will prioritize the participation of women of color/trans people of color/people of color. We ask that all participants read IN ADVANCE of the discussion.

We are asking everyone to provide your own food for breakfast and lunch. We will have snacks available.

Note: This training is free of cost--- however it requires a special application. Please apply online here by February 20th, 2015. Everyone who is invited to participate will be alerted by February 26 and will receive a link to all of the readings and the location information.

Location: Will be given to accepted applicants
