Our Voice, Our Bodies, Our Stories: Tools for Radical Transformation

Join the NC Women’s Center in celebration of Womxn’s HERstory Month. This year the Women’s Center aims to provide strategies for unlearning and retelling. We invite our partners to join us as we honor the Combahee River Collective Statement, “we are actively committed to struggling against racial, sexual, heterosexual, and class oppression (1977).” This commitment holds truth for us as well as other political activists and strategists. Therefore, we put forth this call to action, Our Voice, Our Bodies, Our Stories: Tools for Radical Transformation.

Keynote Speaker

The NC State Women’s Center and our campus partners invite you to join us in our Womxn’s HERstory Month celebration with keynote speaker, Charlene Carruthers, author of Unapologetic: A Black, Queer, and Feminist Mandate for Radical Movements. Carruthers will spend the day with our NC State Community on March 19, 2019 engaging in a meet and greet, a workshop, and keynote presentation in Talley Student Union.

Workshop Opportunity

Hip-Hop & Healing Historical Harm: A Workshop with Aisha Fukushima
Date: Wednesday, March 27th
Time: 2:00pm – 4:00pm
Location: Talley Student Union 3210

Throughout the month, we will interrogate systems and ignite radical traditions in order to make space for critical discourse and the reclaiming of space. We expect programs to promote learning in the following ways:

  • Unlearning To unlearn harmful narratives that allow for acts of mental, emotional, and physical violence against others.
  • Decolonizing To decolonize by calling attention to systems of oppression and injustice.
  • Retelling To retell stories, narratives, and lived experiences by centering the power and agency of voice.
