Reading Group: How We Get Free, Pt. 1 @ Bohemeo's
Oct 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

At our next Houston DSA Reading Group, we will begin discussing How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective. We aim to discuss the first two interviews this time and will cover the remainder at our next meeting.

The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s.

The book collects the original 1977 Combahee River Collective Statement along with four interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles.

It is available for purchase from the publisher:

If you would like access to the epub for the purposes of our discussion, just let us know!
