Glory Edim on "Well-Read Black Girl" at the 2018 Miami Book Fair
 
16:56
Glory Edim on "Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves" at the 2018 Miami Book Fair interviewed by Jeffrey Brown. Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives—but not everyone regularly sees themselves in the pages of a book. In this timely anthology, Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of our best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all—regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability—have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature. Contributors include Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology) Whether it’s learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple, or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, the subjects of each essay remind us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club–turned–online community Well-Read Black Girl, in this anthology Glory Edim has created a space in which black women’s writing and knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world and ourselves. Praise for Well-Read Black Girl “Each essay can be read as a dispatch from the vast and wonderfully complex location that is black girlhood and womanhood. . . . They present literary encounters that may at times seem private and ordinary—hours spent in the children’s section of a public library or in a college classroom—but are no less monumental in their impact.”—The Washington Post “A wonderful collection of essays.”—Essence

Queer Black Trouble (Cheryl Clarke's Kessler Lecture 2013)
 
01:54:56
"Queer Black Trouble: In Life, Literature, and the Age of Obama" Kessler Award Ceremony: Cheryl Clarke, 2013 Kessler Award Recipient A CLAGS event at the Proshansky Auditorium, The Graduate Center, CUNY, New York City, December 6, 2013. The Kessler Award is given to a scholar who has, over a number of years, produced a substantive body of work that has had a significant influence of the field of GLBTQ Studies. For more information about CLAGS, see our website: http://www.clags.org. The 2013 awardee was prominent poet, essayist, and educator Cheryl Clarke, long time Dean of Students at Rutgers University and founding director of the Office of Diverse Community Affairs and Lesbian/Gay Concerns (renamed Office of Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities). The Kessler Awards ceremony included a lecture by the recipient, as well as keynotes given by distinguished guest speaker Elizabeth Lorde-Rollins. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cheryl Clarke is the author of four books of poetry, "Narratives: poems in the tradition of black women" (1982), "Living as a Lesbian" (1986), which has been reprinted this year by Sinister Wisdom and Midsummer Night Presses and will be on sale, "Humid Pitch" (1989), "Experimental Love" (1993), the critical study, "After Mecca: Women Poets and the Black Arts Movement" (Rutgers Press, 2005), and "The Days of Good Looks: Prose and Poetry 1980-2005" (Carroll and Graf, 2006). With Steven G. Fullwood, she co-edited "To Be Left With the Body' for AIDS Project Los Angeles in 2008. Though she has not published a new collection of poetry since 1993, not for lack of trying, she continues to write poetry and essays. She has written a chapbook, entitled "By My Precise Haircut", which was a finalist in the 2013 Bright Hill Press Chapbook Contest in Treadwell, N.Y. Though she has written a number of essays over the years relevant to the black queer community, "Lesbianism: an act of resistance," which first appeared in the iconic "This Bridge Called My Back: Writings By Radical Women of Color" (Anzaldua and Moraga, eds., 1982) and "The Failure to Transform: Homophobia in the Black Community," which was published in the equally iconic "Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology" (Smith, ed., 1984) remain favorites. She considers herself a scholar of Audre Lorde's poetry and continues to write about the impact of Lorde's poetry. She recently wrote an introduction to "G.R.I.T.S., An Anthology of Writing by Southern Black Lesbians" (Williams, ed., Media Arts Project, 2013). Her article, "By Its Absence: Literature and Social Justice Consciousness" will appear in "The Handbook of Social Justice" (Reisch, ed., Routledge, 2014). She was the founding director of the Center for Social Justice Education and LGBT Communities from 1992-2009 and Dean of Students for the Livingston Campus from 2009 until she finally retired on July 1, after 41 years of studying, teaching, and administration at Rutgers. Black Queer Troublemakers, Darnell Moore, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Steven G. Fullwood, and Mecca J. Sullivan and a host of other intergenerational Black Queer Troublemakers convened "Cheryl Clarke: A Retrofuturespective," which celebrated her writing. She is co-owner with Barbara Balliet, her partner of 22 years, of Blenheim Hill Books in Hobart, N.Y., the Book Village of the Catskills. She also lives in Jersey City. She graduated from Howard University in 1969 and received a Ph.D. in English from Rutgers in 2000. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Read more about this event and other CLAGS events on the website: http://www.clags.org. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Cheryl Clarke is introduced by Elizabeth Lorde-Rollins, a physician, a poet, and the daughter of Audre Lorde (1934-92), the author of nine collections of poetry, including "Cables to Rage" (1970). Her first poems were published in Langston Hughes's "New Negro Poets USA" (1962), and her collected poems were published in 1997. She wrote "as a Black woman, a mother, a daughter, a Lesbian, a feminist, a visionary; poems of elemental wildness and healing, nightmare and lucidity" (Adrienne Rich).

Plenary Address: Linda Sarsour
 
57:56
American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting November 20, 2017 Boston, Massachusetts Panelists: Linda Sarsour Eddie S. Glaude, Presiding Linda Sarsour is a working woman, racial justice and civil rights activist, and mother of three. Ambitious, outspoken and independent, Linda shatters stereotypes of Muslim women while also treasuring her religious and ethnic heritage. She is a Palestinian Muslim American and a self-proclaimed “pure New Yorker, born and raised in Brooklyn!” She is the Executive Director of the Arab American Association of New York and co-founder of the first Muslim online organizing platform, MPOWER Change. Linda has been at the forefront of major civil rights campaigns including calling for an end to unwarranted surveillance of New York’s Muslim communities and ending police policies like stop and frisk. In wake of the police murder of Mike Brown, she co-founded Muslims for Ferguson to build solidarity amongst American Muslim communities and encourage work against police brutality. She is a member of the Justice League NYC, a leading NYC force of activists, formerly incarcerated individuals, and artists working to reform the New York Police Department and the criminal justice system. Linda co-chaired the March2Justice, a 250-mile journey on foot to deliver a justice package to end racial profiling, demilitarize police and demand the government invest in young people and communities. Linda Sarsour was instrumental in the Coalition for Muslim School Holidays to push New York City to incorporate 2 Muslim high holy holidays in to the NYC Public school calendar. This year, New York City will be the largest school system in the country to officially recognize these holidays. This year, Linda joined leading social justice faith leaders as a Senior Fellow at Auburn Seminary. She has received numerous awards and honors including “Champion of Change” by the White House, YWCA USA’s Women of Distinction Award for Advocacy and Civic Engagement and the Hala Maksoud Leadership Award from the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Sarsour was named among 500 of the most influential Muslims in the world. Most recently, Linda was profiled on the front page of the New York Times Metro Section and dubbed “Brooklyn Homegirl in a Hijab” and introduced Linda to their readership as “Mixing street smarts, activism and her Muslim identity, Linda Sarsour has become a political force”. She has written for and has been featured in local, national, and international media discussing impact of domestic policies that target Arab and Muslim American communities, criminal justice issues and Middle East affairs. Linda is well respected amongst diverse communities in both in New York City and nationally. She is most known for her intersectional coalition work and building bridges across issues, racial, ethnic and faith communities.

Well-Read Black Girl: Finding Our Stories, Discovering Ourselves by Glory Edim Pre-order: Affiliate link Amazon US - https://amzn.to/2SwITWp Pre-order: Affiliate link Amazon UK - https://amzn.to/2EFLnPT New be released on October 30, 2018 An inspiring collection of essays by black women writers, curated by the founder of the popular book club Well-Read Black Girl, on the importance of recognizing ourselves in literature. "Yes, Well-Read Black Girl is as good as it sounds. . . . [Glory Edim] gathers an all-star cast of contributors--among them Lynn Nottage, Jesmyn Ward, and Gabourey Sidibe."--O: The Oprah Magazine ("10 Books to be Thankful for This November") Remember that moment when you first encountered a character who seemed to be written just for you? That feeling of belonging remains with readers the rest of their lives--but not everyone regularly sees themselves in the pages of a book. In this timely anthology, Glory Edim brings together original essays by some of our best black women writers to shine a light on how important it is that we all--regardless of gender, race, religion, or ability--have the opportunity to find ourselves in literature. Contributors include Jesmyn Ward (Sing, Unburied, Sing), Lynn Nottage (Sweat), Jacqueline Woodson (Another Brooklyn), Gabourey Sidibe (This Is Just My Face), Morgan Jerkins (This Will Be My Undoing), Tayari Jones (An American Marriage), Rebecca Walker (Black, White and Jewish), and Barbara Smith (Home Girls: A Black Feminist Anthology) Whether it's learning about the complexities of femalehood from Zora Neale Hurston and Toni Morrison, finding a new type of love in The Color Purple, or using mythology to craft an alternative black future, the subjects of each essay remind us why we turn to books in times of both struggle and relaxation. As she has done with her book club-turned-online community Well-Read Black Girl, in this anthology Glory Edim has created a space in which black women's writing and knowledge and life experiences are lifted up, to be shared with all readers who value the power of a story to help us understand the world and ourselves. Advance praise for Well-Read Black Girl "A brilliant collection of essential American reading . . . smart, powerful, and complete."--Min Jin Lee, author of the National Book Award finalist Pachinko "Edim's Well-Read Black Girl online community is one of the best arguments for social media that exists. In this essay collection she has edited, we can see that it's also necessary, with some of today's finest writers . . . making the case for why representation in literature changes lives."--The Washington Post ("The 10 books to read in October").

Friday Forum: Look Again: New Perspectives On Our Housing Crisis
 
59:02
Presented on January 27, 2017, Our City faces a housing crisis. Current policy and media attention has focused on the urgent needs of shelter and escalating rents. But the problem is not just economic, it’s deeper – and longer reaching. At this event, civic leaders in Oregon will launch a yearlong series of conversations, "We Call This Home: Wealth, Home Ownership, and Race" that will focus on one of the toughest challenges facing our growing city – How do we ensure that the decisions we make as a growing city reflect both the wisdom we've gained through our shared history of inequality, and also the visions we share for a safe, abundant, and affordable place for all to live? We start with a provocative conversation between two dynamic national leaders, Rhea Combs, curator of Film and Photography at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, and Rukaiyah Adams, Chief Investment Officer for Meyer Memorial Trust. Dr. Combs and Ms. Adams will explore both civic and cultural aspects of belonging in our region in a wide-ranging, no holds barred conversation. SPEAKERS Rukaiyah Adams is the Chief Investment Officer for Meyer Memorial Trust. Before joining Meyer, she was the Director of Investment Management at The Standard. Rukaiyah holds a BA from Carleton College with Academic Distinction, a JD from Stanford Law School, where she served on the Law and Policy Review, and an MBA from The Stanford Graduate School of Business. She serves on the board of directors of Oregon Public Broadcasting. She also serves as vice chair of the Oregon Investment Council, the board that manages approximately $90 billion for the Oregon Public Employees Retirement Fund. In the past, she has served on the boards of the Black Coalition on AIDS and Portland Center Stage. Her pro bono work includes negotiating on behalf of the Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights, the Homeless Prenatal Project in San Francisco and the National Children’s Defense Fund. Dr. Rhea L. Combs is Curator of Film and Photography at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture and head of the Stafford Center for African American Media Arts. Combs taught visual culture, film, race, and gender courses at Chicago State University, Lewis & Clark College and Emory University. She also worked as the assistant curator for the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art in Atlanta and as a public programs educator at the Chicago Historical Museum. Combs received her B.A. degree from Howard University, a Master of Arts degree from Cornell University, and a Doctorate from Emory University. Her writings have been featured in anthologies, academic journals and exhibition catalogues on range of topics including African American female filmmakers, black popular culture, visual aesthetics, filmmaking and photography. Combs’ current projects, respectively, include Through the African American Lens: Selections from the Permanent Collection of NMAAHC, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture’s photography books series, Double Exposure, which includes: Through the African American Lens: A Survey of NMAAHC’s photography collection, Civil Rights and the Struggle for Equality and African American Women.

11-20-18 – Eloquent Rage  – Chapter 10 – “Love In A Hopeless Place”
 
01:42:24
This Hangout of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle shares our reflections on the Session 11 reading selection, “Eloquent Rage,” by Brittney Cooper. Kim Brandon served as the evening’s moderator and was joined by Black Feminist Conversationalists Leonie Smith, Georgette Moses, Nicole Jackson Wilson and L. Michelle Odom. Conversation in this week’s Hangout focused on Chapter 10 – “Love In A Hopeless Place”, which included themes like the challenge of finding good love – when you’re a Black woman, an independent woman, and a feminist; and impediments to Black love like mass incarceration, economics and misogyny. Please feel free to join The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (community) on Google+ or Facebook to keep abreast of current events. Our live broadcasts are available for current viewing on YouTube at the link posted on the event page. If you are interested in joining the online conversation, or have any questions, please contact us at OurBlackStory@gmail.com. Hope to see you soon! :) Selected Reading: Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower, by Brittney Cooper, St. Martin's Press, 2018, New York, NY. https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250112576 “So what if it’s 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. “Far too often, Black women’s anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that. Black women’s eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It’s what makes Beyoncé’s girl power anthems resonate so hard. It’s what makes Michelle Obama an icon. “Eloquent rage keeps us all honest and accountable. It reminds women that they don’t have to settle for less. When Cooper learned of her grandmother's eloquent rage about love, sex, and marriage in an epic and hilarious front-porch confrontation, her life was changed. And it took another intervention, this time staged by one of her homegirls, to turn Brittney into the fierce feminist she is today. In Brittney Cooper’s world, neither mean girls nor fuckboys ever win. But homegirls emerge as heroes. This book argues that ultimately feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers are all we really need to turn things right side up again.” — Publisher Platforms: Google+ Hangouts + YouTube + Community Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Join live discussions, become a member, receive invitations, and stay updated here). http://bit.ly/1Y7S6kU YouTube YouTube Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Watch live discussions and find video archives here). http://bit.ly/1nkgcM3 Facebook Facebook Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Receive invitations and keep updated here). http://on.fb.me/21IfDhS FOR MORE INFORMATION or technical assistance, Contact: Loga Michelle Odom OurBlackStory@gmail.com (917) 291-5761 #GlobalBlackFeministReadingCircle #EloquentRage #RealPeopleRealTalk A Reading For Change Production.

Intro to IDA Week 7: The 5th Element Symposium Hip-Hop Feminism Pedagogies Panel
 
01:29:31
NOVEMBER 8 , 2017 INTRODUCTION TO IDENTITY, DIVERSITY, AND AESTHETICS: ARTS, CULTURE, & PEDAGOGY AFRICAAM 10A | CSRE 10A Featuring.... JOAN MORGAN, BRITTNEY COOPER, KAILA STORY, AND TREVA LINDSAY This weekly lecture series introduces students to the study of identity, diversity, and aesthetics through the work of leading artists and scholars affiliated with the Institute for Diversity in the Arts (IDA). This year’s course highlights the educational impact of arts and culture. How can arts and culture help to transform and advance pedagogies of liberation? How do pedagogies of liberation help us to understand issues of identity and equity? Among other things, we will examine hip-hop education and how it illuminates ideas around culturally relevant and culturally sustaining pedagogies, indigenous knowledges, embodied knowledges, hip-hop feminisms, and community engaged research. We will look at case studies from East Palo Alto, CA and Cape Town, South Africa, among other places. We will explore the ways in which various pedagogies allow us to advance practices of identity, freedom, and justice.

10-30-18 – Eloquent Rage  – Chapter 7 – “Orchestrated Fury”
 
01:49:06
This Hangout of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle shares our reflections on the Session 11 reading selection, “Eloquent Rage,” by Brittney Cooper. Leonie Smith served as the evening’s moderator and was joined by Black Feminist Conversationalists Nicole Jackson Wilson, L. Michelle Odom, Kim Brandon and Georgette Moses. Conversation in this week’s Hangout focused on Chapter 7 – “Orchestrated Fury”, which included themes like the limits of respectability politics and the forms and uses of rage, from quiet to loud and inelegant to eloquent. Please feel free to join The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (community) on Google+ or Facebook to keep abreast of current events. Our live broadcasts are available for current viewing on YouTube at the link posted on the event page. If you are interested in joining the online conversation, or have any questions, please contact us at OurBlackStory@gmail.com. Hope to see you soon! :) Selected Reading: Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower, by Brittney Cooper, St. Martin's Press, 2018, New York, NY. https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781250112576 “So what if it’s 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. “Far too often, Black women’s anger has been caricatured into an ugly and destructive force that threatens the civility and social fabric of American democracy. But Cooper shows us that there is more to the story than that. Black women’s eloquent rage is what makes Serena Williams such a powerful tennis player. It’s what makes Beyoncé’s girl power anthems resonate so hard. It’s what makes Michelle Obama an icon. “Eloquent rage keeps us all honest and accountable. It reminds women that they don’t have to settle for less. When Cooper learned of her grandmother's eloquent rage about love, sex, and marriage in an epic and hilarious front-porch confrontation, her life was changed. And it took another intervention, this time staged by one of her homegirls, to turn Brittney into the fierce feminist she is today. In Brittney Cooper’s world, neither mean girls nor fuckboys ever win. But homegirls emerge as heroes. This book argues that ultimately feminism, friendship, and faith in one's own superpowers are all we really need to turn things right side up again.” — Publisher Platforms: Google+ Hangouts + YouTube + Community Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Join live discussions, become a member, receive invitations, and stay updated here). http://bit.ly/1Y7S6kU YouTube YouTube Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Watch live discussions and find video archives here). http://bit.ly/1nkgcM3 Facebook Facebook Home of The Global Black Feminist Reading Circle (Receive invitations and keep updated here). http://on.fb.me/21IfDhS FOR MORE INFORMATION or technical assistance, Contact: Loga Michelle Odom OurBlackStory@gmail.com (917) 291-5761 #GlobalBlackFeministReadingCircle #EloquentRage #RealPeopleRealTalk A Reading For Change Production.
