  • McCarthy Center Forum 100 State Street Framingham, MA, 01702 United States (map)

Ashley Farmer

Drawing on a vast array of black women's artwork, political cartoons, manifestos, and political essays that they produced as members of groups, such as the Black Panther Party, founded in 1966, and the Congress of African People, founded in 1970, Farmer’s talk shows how black women activists reimagined black womanhood, challenged sexism, and redefined the meaning of race, gender, identity, and Black Power.
