PROGRAM 9:45–10 AM: Welcome 10–11 AM: Mary Helen Washington (keynote): Afterlives: Legacies of the Black Literary Left 11 AM–12:30 PM: Black Left Feminist Internationalism This panel examines the radical antiracist, anticolonial, socialist internationalist, and feminist visions of social change, that Mary Helen Washington terms “Black Left Feminism.” Cheryl Higashida, Mariame Kaba, and John Munro discuss key intellectuals, organizers, and artists in this internationalist tradition. They consider how Black Marxist feminists like Louise Thompson Patterson, Claudia Jones, Lorraine Hansberry and others confronted racism, patriarchy, capitalism, and imperialism in their own times. Panelists explore how the anticolonial Left survived the Cold War. They will suggest how new generations of antiracists, feminists, and socialists might engage this rich political tradition in our own times. Moderated by Jordan T. Camp. 1:45–3:15 PM: Recovering Global Radicalism Lisa Armstrong, S. Ani Mukherji, and Margaret Stevens recover lost and forgotten histories of shared global struggle. They explore the formation of radical networks across spaces and struggles from Harlem, Mexico City, San Juan, Moscow, Port-Au-Prince, to Beijing from the early to mid-twentieth century. They describe how radicals linked struggles against Jim Crow, capitalism, imperialism, apartheid, and patriarchy in shared global movements. In examining these internationalist webs, they explore how hidden histories of global radicalism can embolden international solidarity at present. Moderated by Christina Heatherton. 4–5 PM: Vijay Prashad (keynote): What is the Meaning of the Left? 5:15–6:45 PM: Decolonized Feminist Futures The final session explores the challenges and promises of cohering an internationalist political project around core feminist principles. Claudia De la Cruz, Chantelle Bateman, and Melanie Yazzie will discuss the centrality of feminist organization to mass protest against the current U.S. administration, situated in global contexts of struggle. Panelists will consider their work in movements such as the Poor People’s Campaign; Diné solidarity with Palestine; among others. Looking to the future, this panel will emphasize the significance of social reproduction and the centrality of feminism to dismantling cultures of war and imperialism. Moderated by Manu Karuka. 8 PM: After Party Featuring DJ Assim + DJ KayKay47
