A two day online conference.
This online conference aims to spotlight academic research and publications which enhance our understanding and provide fresh insight into the lives of phenomenal Black Women through the ages. Celebrated inspirational keynote and headline speakers will enrich this event. The Black woman has too often been ignored and rendered invisible from public discourse even when issues directly impact their lives. Organised by three Black female historians: Dr Angelina Osborne, Dr Juanita Cox, Dr Elizabeth Williams, this event will shine a bright light, acknowledge, critically assess, and elevate the varied contribution of Black women to the lived experience of humanity.
Keynote speakers: Prof Olivette Otele Professor of the History of Slavery-Bristol University, Colleen Amos OBE, CEO-Amos Bursary, Stella Dadzie, Feminist and Intellectual
Headline interviews: Margaret Busby OBE (Editor, Writer, Broadcaster, Publisher), Sisonke Msimang (Author, Intellectual ‘The Resurrection of Winnie Mandela’ 2018), Pascale Lamche (Producer, Director, Film ‘Winnie’ 2017)
The organisers invite proposals for the conference focusing on the Black woman and her relationship to health and well-being, Black women fighting for social justice, campaigners, and activists in challenge to the established order, Black women as entrepreneurs, educators, creatives, prophetesses, engagement in the politics of gender and sexuality.
