Check out our FIRST EVER PODCAST as part of the BrokenBeautiful Press educational campaign “Eternal Summer of the Black Feminist Mind.”  Black Feminism LIVES by every means necessary.

What does it take to survive a year like 1979?

This first podcast is about the year 1979 and how the world, and black feminism began and ended in some crucial ways that year. With the election of Ronald Reagan, the Boston Murders, the Atlanta Child Murders and the Greensboro Massacre all attacking the the lives, minds and spirits of black women 1979 was a crucial year.  This podcast focuses on how Audre Lorde, Alexis DeVeaux, June Jordan and Barbara Smith reach(ed) across time and space to transform the meaning of survival.  (And there is some good period appropriate and anachronistic music too!)

p.s.  Sorry about the moments of outburst distortion.  A sista is clearly super exuberantly excited about black feminism and promises to stay a little further away from the mic on podcast number two! :)
