Stories from the Womb: Afro-Colombian Activists' accounts of Resistance and World Building

What are the situations black organizers and movement builders face in South America? What are the connections between black struggles there and here in the US? Can a hemispheric black movement be built?

DS4SI is hosting a small group of Afro-Colombian activist women from Casa Cultural el Chontaduro, a completely grassroots and autonomous organization at the heart of the largest Black neighborhood in Cali.

Vicenta Moreno Hurtado, a leader in Casa Cultural el Chontaduro, will talk about situations she and other activists face in Colombia.

Beatriz Balanta, Professor, Art History Southern Methodist University, will facilitate our larger conversation about how to support and collaborate across struggles.

Hope to see you there!
