Yesterday—May 5, 2022—marks 5 years since Black Feminist Collective was created.

We are an intergenerational collective of Black feminists and womanists across the diaspora who stand for Black liberation in its entirety. Our mission is to center the work of Black feminists who have provided us with the tools to create a global community with a shared goal of creating a better world for Black people through political education.

We have published poetry, covered protests and other events, interviewed Black liberationists and community activists who know that another world is possible, and published articles in support movements that are not limited to prison and police abolition, queer liberation, . In addition to this, we recently 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.
