In a talk titled, “The Black Women Intellectuals and Activists Who Revolutionized Black Power,” Farmer will provide an overview of well and lesser-known black women radicals, their theories of racial justice, and the effects of their ideals on the scope and trajectory of the Black Power Movement. Drawing on a vast and untapped array of black women's artwork, political cartoons, manifestos, and political essays that they produced as members of groups such as the Black Panther Party and the Congress of African People, Farmer’s talk shows how black women activists reimagined black womanhood, challenged sexism, and redefined the meaning of race, gender, and identity in American life.
