Feminismos Negros na Literatura e Arte Brasileira (Black Feminisms in Brazilian Literature and Art)
April 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Until recently, Black women writers and artists have long been excluded from the cultural mainstream in Brazil. However, Black women have actively participated in and interjected political, social, and cultural debates on race, gender, and class for centuries, such as authors, journalists, and artists Maria Firmina dos Reis, Antonieta de Barros, Carolina Maria de Jesus, and Maria Auxiladora. This roundtable discussion between writer Conceição Evaristo and artist Rosana Paulino, two prominent Brazilian Black feminist cultural producers of the present-day, and moderated by the geographer and cultural studies scholar Geny Ferreira Guimarães will consider the stakes of Black feminism as an artistic practice in Brazil while also making room for Black women to explore their own identities, struggles, and joys through creation.
The event will be in Portuguese with English interpretation.
