May 5th, 2022, marks five years since Black Feminist Collective as created.

Our new mission statement: We are an intergenerational collective of Black feminists and womanists across the diaspora who stand for Black liberation in its entirety. Our mission has been to create a global community of Black feminists and womanists who have a shared goal of creating a better world for Black people, through political education, interviews, sharing personal narratives and poetry, writing reviews and analyses, and covering events in our communities from a Black feminist perspective.

On May 5th, 2017, Black Feminist Collective started out as a project that affirms the work of Black girls, women and non-binary people.

Over the past five years, we have covered community events, interviewed Black liberationists and community organizers, and provided space for people to share their personal narratives and poetry. Additionally, we have published articles in support of movements that include, but are not limited to queer liberation and abolition. More recently, we began facilitating teach-ins and live conversations with Black feminists and womanists across the diaspora to nurture and expand our politic.

We appreciate those who have been a part of Black Feminist Collective for the past 5 years. Over the next years, we strive to continue supporting fights against white supremacy in all its forms; the capitalist exploitation of Black workers, imperialism, patriarchy, colorism, ableism, xenophobia, heterosexism, cissexism, fatphobia.
