The Black Women’s Convention scheduled for March 27-29 in Philadelphia, is a gathering of poor and working-class Black women who believe that a better world is possible. The purpose of the Convention is to encourage discussions and workshops that will challenge, excite and organize working-class African women under their own leadership. The Convention will bring together women from across the African diaspora. Black women professionals, artists, activists, with one agenda, to create a new society where the leadership of black women is integral to its success.
Our theme, Sisters United for the Revolution, envisions a near future where black women, from all over the world, connect with and support each other in our efforts to shape a new world. There are so many barriers that limit(s ?) how black women create change and we plan to break down those barriers, making way for a new revolutionary black woman to emerge.
The Black Women’s Convention will be an inter-generational socialist event that will sharpen black women’s awareness and deepen our concepts of freedom with strategies to get there. We look forward to building new sisterhoods. Although our organization is organized under the leadership of poor and working-class African women, who often time are the voiceless, we are inclusive of ALL black women regardless of income level.
This is a space for young women, mothers, aunties, sisters, cousins, grandmothers, daughters, including those who are gender non-conforming.
We call on you to stand up, roll up your sleeve and take up your responsibility as a maker and shaper of a new society for African people! Up you mighty African Warrior Woman!
You won’t want to miss this life changing event!
