Black Feminist Future values interdependency within the Black feminist community and we lead by example. With our innovation labs, we create space for leaders to explore and experiment with big questions and ideas to vision and imagine solutions and interventions to some of the biggest issues facing our communities, organizations, and movements.
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.
Welcome to Black Feminist Future’s Membership. Are you a new or long-time Black feminist leader or activist who wants to defeat misogynoir and advance Black feminisms? Are you looking for a community of Black people who are interested in liberation? If so, our community of Black feminist leaders is the hub for you.
Black Feminist Future serves on the leadership team of this table. The table exists to end the epidemic and legacy of patriarchal violence within Black communities. Guided by radical Black feminist politics and a commitment to abolition practices, we are a survivor centered project focused on advancing interventions, education, leadership development, power building, and shifting culture in order to prevent, disrupt, interrupt, and interrogate the unchecked consequences of patriarchy and misogynoir in our families, relationships, communities and movements.
Black Feminist Future is committed to identifying Black feminist leaders, organizations, and movements to strengthen relationships, share work, and build collective power. In early 2021, BFF embarked on a collaborative project to begin to methodically engage in a mapping process that will support us in identifying Black feminist liberators and organizations transnationally to increase connectivity, share resources, and exchange ideas.
In partnership with the National Birth Equity Project and AfroResistance, BFF is collaborating around the long- term goal of advancing Black reproductive and sexual wellbeing globally by investing in Black women & RJ liberators while dismantling gendered racism embedded within the long-standing family planning framework.
2022 was impossible, unimaginable, and Black Feminist Future is a political hub informed by the legacy of Black feminist organizing, grounded in the current pulse of movements and located at the emergent need to build Black feminist power. As a movement incubator, we focus on the dynamic possibilities of galvanizing the social and political power of Black feminisms as a blueprint for liberation. BFF intends to amplify and support the leadership and power of Black feminists and increase the capacity and impact of Black feminist organizations, and movements. Take a look at the impact of our efforts in 2022.
