In this timely and unique book, Brenna Bhandar and Rafeef Ziadah trace forty years of anti-racist feminist thought by interviewing key revolutionary thinkers. Through interviews with key revolutionary scholars, Bhandar and Ziadah present a thorough discussion of how anti-racist, anti-capitalist feminisms are crucial to building effective political coalitions. Collectively, these interviews with leading scholars including Angela Y. Davis, Silvia Federici, and many others, trace the ways in which black, indigenous, post-colonial and Marxian feminisms have created new ways of seeing, new theoretical frameworks for analysing political problems, and new ways of relating to one another. Focusing on migration, neo-imperial militarism, the state, the prison industrial complex, social reproduction and many other pressing themes, the range of feminisms traversed in this volume show how freedom requires revolutionary transformation in the organisation of the economy, social relations, political structures, and our psychic and symbolic worlds.
At this online event we will hear from the book’s authors and some of the interviewees: Gary Kinsman, Silvia Federici , Gail Lewis and Lisa Lowe.
This event is free and will be live-streamed to Verso’s YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as being made available to watch after the event has finished.
