The event will uplift the voices of the many Black women who have led the way to social change.
RISE San Diego will host a special webinar on Thursday, June 11 from 6-7:30 pm entitled "Say Our Names: Black Women of the Movement." The event is intended to uplift the voices of the many Black women past and present who have led the way toward social change.
In a statement regarding the event, RISE San Diego wrote:
"Black women have always been a part of Black liberation. From Ida B. Wells, Ella Baker, and Tarana Burke, to Alicia Garza, Feminista Jones, and Bree Newsome, BLACK WOMEN HAVE LED THE WAY TO LIBERATION. So why are their voices so often NOT MENTIONED AND EVEN forgotten in the Movement?"
The online event will be hosted on the Zoom platform and everyone is welcome to participate. Those who wish to get log-in information should register in advance.
