Brittney Cooper, Susana Morris, and Chanel Craft Tanner present Feminist AF: A Guide to Crushing Girlhood
Greenlight welcomes back Brittney Cooper (Eloquent Rage), Susana Morris, and Chanel Craft Tanner—activists, educators, scholars, and members of the Crunk Feminist Collective, a group of feminists of color who came of age in the hip-hop generation—for a special presentation of Feminist AF, their new intersectional resource for young feminists. Cooper, Morris, and Tanner apply the insights of feminist theory to address issues relevant to today’s young womxn, offering candid insights on friendships, bodies, family dynamics, emotional health, pop culture, dating, sex, sexism, racism, homophobia, classism, and xenophobia. “We cheer for everybody feminist—trans girls, cis girls, girls with disabilities, BIPOC girls, queer girls, working-class girls, nonbinary folx, and our non-girl allies,” the authors write. Join Greenlight for an empowering evening with an audience Q&A!
Hip-hop and feminism combine in this empowering guide with attitude, from best-selling author Brittney Cooper and founding members of the Crunk Feminist Collective.
Loud and rowdy girls, quiet and nerdy girls, girls who rock naturals, girls who wear weave, outspoken and opinionated girls, girls still finding their voice, queer girls, trans girls, and gender nonbinary young people who want to make the world better: Feminist AF uses the insights of feminism to address issues relevant to today’s young womxn.
So what if its true that Black women are mad as hell? They have the right to be. In the Black feminist tradition of Audre Lorde, Brittney Cooper reminds us that anger is a powerful source of energy that can give us the strength to keep on fighting.
