Sisterhood and Struggle: Writing Black Women’s Political Leadership
The United African Women Organization – Greece (UAWO) and ENPAD invite you to 3 days of events in Athens, Greece with Dr. Carole Boyce Davies over the course of October 11, 12 and 13, 2019.
The events take place in the context of UAWO’ s ongoing study of Black and Afrofeminist traditions.
A continuation of UAWO’s 1st Black Feminist Skillsharing Workshop, which took place in Athens over the course of five weeks in 2018, the initiative aims to address issues concerning the politics of space, and function as platform to access knowledge and histories of political struggle often unacknowledged in many activist spaces in Greece and elsewhere. The event series includes workshops, womxn’s circles, reading groups and public talks.
The upcoming events also mark the first visit of ENPAD to Greece. ENPAD’S annual meeting will be taking place over the weekend, with members gathering from over 15 countries in Europe.
On Friday October 11, 6pm Dr. Carole Boyce Davies will give a public lecture titled Half the World and African Women’s Rights which will take place at the Antoniadou Amphitheater (Amfitheatro Antoniadou) at ASOEE, Athens University of Economics and Business (Patission 76).
