"Our bodies were the occupied countries we liberated... it was also important to claim the body as a site of pleasure, power and possibility. We were making revolution". bell hooks

Black feminists are curating groundbreaking and fully interactive exhibits centering on response and revolutionary acts by Black women in America. We will juxtapose narratives of intentional confrontation by Black women who used policy, organizing and public speech versus those who used more provocative measures to regain and reclaim themselves through other means like blues music, gender-non conformity, sexuality and weapons meant to meet violence with violence.

This multimedia installation features various representations and acts of resistance by Black women in America including a series of images, narratives, textiles, reading materials, video, listening stations and sculpture capturing historical and contemporary moments in Black women's long history and tradition of resistance on slave ships, in the midst of Jim Crow, during the Great Migration, a male dominated Civil Rights movement and where these women collided with Black Nationalist brothers and White feminists.
