Saturday 6 March, 10am – 5pm
Held at The Women's Library
This day provides an overview of the rise of black British feminism in the 1970s.
It will draw on the Black Cultural Archives’ recent oral history project, which collected testimonies from the women involved in OWAAD (Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent) and other Black women's groups.
Heart of the Race considers the significance of the movement, and reflects on how grassroots Black and Asian women’s movement became important to an emerging black British feminist consciousness.
In collaboration with Black Cultural Archives & London Metropolitan Archives.
(Please note – this event was postponed from 14 November 2009).
