The Heart of the Race: Black feminism in Britain.

// 28 September 2009

The Heart of the Race event will take place at The Women’s Library, London on Saturday 14 November, 10am – 5pm:

The Black Cultural Archives recent oral history project to collect testimonies of the women involved in OWAAD (Organisation of Women of African and Asian Descent) and other Black women’s groups, is inspired by the seminal book ‘The Heart of the Race’ by Beverley Bryan, Stella Dadzie and Suzanne Scafe. This day draws on this project, and provides an overview of the rise of black British feminism in the 1970s, reflecting on how grassroots Black and Asian women’s movements became important to an emerging black British feminist consciousness.

Speakers include author Stella Dadzie, and Heidi Mirza, University of London. Directions here.
