Feminist Afrofuturism: Black History Month at PSU 2019

Feminist Afrofuturism: Black History Month at PSU aimed to bring together a diverse group of students, scholars, and community members to create a collaborative art project that celebrates the contributions of black women in American History. Throughout the month those involved in the project came together to learn and practice a traditional fiber craft, and collectively crochet large scale banner honoring an important historical figure, Nina Simone.

At the conclusion of the month, the experience culminated in a showcase of the work in conjunction with a scholarly presentation by Dr. Aria Halliday, University of New Hampshire Women’s Studies, titled The Afrofuturisms of Feminism: Young, Gifted, & Black. For more information on the February 2019 culminating event click here.
