Black August Bravery

Y'all it's Black August!
Check out this essay on the meaning of Black August

is also a good time of year to transform and re-energize for those of us involved in the Academic Industrial Complex (which we remember shares many of the funding sources and disciplinary purposes as the prison without forgetting the privilege that access to academic spaces grants some of us). And some of us are brave. Work is beginning on a website for black feminist scholars to supplement publication of Still Brave a Black Women's Studies reader in the tradition of ground breaking book All the Women Are White, All the Blacks are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave.
