Black Women's Blueprint invites you to a charitable event, honoring the contributors to Words of Fire: An Anthology of African-American Feminist Thought. ?The first major anthology to trace the development, from the early 1800s to the present, of black feminist thought in the United States, Words of Fire is Beverly Guy-Sheftall’s comprehensive collection of writings, in the feminist tradition, of more than sixty African American women. From the pioneering work of abolitionist Maria Miller Stewart and anti-lynching crusader Ida Wells-Barnett to the writings of contemporary feminist critics Michele Wallace and bell hooks, black women have been writing about the multiple jeopardies—racism, sexism, and classism—that have made it imperative for them to forge a brand of feminism uniquely their own.   When as women we honor each other, we commit acts of resistance and liberation. On the one-year anniversary of the Black Women's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, we will honor a cross-generation of  Black feminists on whose great shoulders we stand: those who continue to put their lives on the line today for Black women and girls and those who are the keepers of a new and powerful era of truth, justice, healing and transformation.
