We are honored to be part of a revolutionary episode that also features the work of AF3irm and an archival interview with Ntozake Shange!

Alexis Pauline Gumbs was the first person to dig through the archives of several radical black feminist mothers including June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Lucille Clifton, and Toni Cade Bambara while writing her dissertation We Can Learn to Mother Ourselves: The Queer Survival of Black Feminism, a 500-page work. Alexis was named one of UTNE Reader’s 50 Visionaries Transforming the World in 2009, a Reproductive Reality Check Shero, and a Black Woman Rising nominee in 2010, and was awarded one of the first ever Too Sexy for 501c3 trophies in 2011! Alexis’s work as co-creator of the Mobile Homecoming experiential archive and documentary project has been featured in Curve magazine, the Huffington Post, in Durham Magazine and on NPR.  She is the author of Spill: Scenes of Black Feminist Fugitivity (Duke University Press, 2016.)

Fabiola Sandoval lives, works, and plays in Los Angeles with her daughter Amaya and three pets. Since this essay was written they have moved from Lincoln Heights to another neighborhood in Northeast LA. She’s originally from South LA and mostly understands that home is in communion and connection. Amaya is now eleven and continues to dance,
sing and no longer likes long dresses. A poet, she has an essay published in Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind, and has been a regular contributor for make/shift magazine. She blogged at (her own site) actively from 2004 to 2013. Being a part of the communities: Radical Women of Color blogosphere, and SPEAK! Radical Women of Color Media Collective was instrumental in shaping her writing life.

Feminist Magazine is on the air to educate, advocate, inform, and entertain through a variety of feminist lenses.  We provide the tools necessary to implement feminist analysis and action via interviews, commentaries, performances, news, open dialogues and other features involving activists, intellectuals, and artists, etc.
