Black Feminist Future envisions a world where all Black women, girls, and gender-expansive folks are: safe, joyful, cared for, powerful, self-determining, and thriving. We envision a world where freedom is our birthright and we are in abundant, nurturing, and interdependent relationships with our communities and the earth.
BFF is a political hub focused on the dynamic possibilities of galvanizing the social and political power of Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people towards liberation. We do this by building and nourishing the leadership of fierce Black feminists, fortifying aligned organizations and movements, and shifting cultural norms.

Uncover the interconnected narratives of Palestine, Haiti, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Atlanta, GA. Moderated by Paris Hatcher, our panelists – Mary Hooks, Barbara Ransby, Bisan, Krystina François, and Jolie Massay – illuminate their experiences, unveiling the systemic patriarchal violence at the core of these communities’ quests for liberation.
Abortion is Freedom is Black Feminist Future’s (BFF) response to the outrageous attacks on reproductive freedom in the United States and Georgia. At the end of the day, freedom is being in control of our own bodies. Abortion bans are meant to control us, period. We need these anti-abortion politicians to mind their business and stay out of our bodies.
The experiences of Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people are often forgotten or erased. In 2020, BFF launched Black Womxn Are Essential to circumvent this erasure by clocking the racial and gender impact of COVID on this community through a collection of data, observation, and shared understanding. The ultimate goal of collecting this data is to use this resource to inform our collective work and help us move in a more impactful manner to serve our communities.
Fractals: A Black Feminist Organizing and Movement-Building Timeline is an interactive resource spanning the 1800s to the current time, that documents the ongoing pulse of Black feminist leaders, action points, cultural moments, key terms, and social movements in the U.S.
Black feminisms explain how systems of oppression and power like white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, etc. are both interconnected and systemic.
Patriarchal violence as a framework allows us to better understand the dynamic, interconnected system of institutions, practices, policies, culture, beliefs, and behaviors that support and cause violence against women, girls, and gender-expansive people.
