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. Join Us In A Praise Song for Black Feminists ?We Honor The Contributors to Words of Fire: An Anthology of African-American Feminist Thought. IN PERSON Honorees include: Dr. Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Fania Davis, Cheryl Clarke, Michele Wallace, Loretta Ross, Ruby Sales and other Black feminists and activists. Video remarks from Alice Walker and Angela Davis Gala Keynote and Mistress of Ceremony: Michaela Angela Davis
