Brittney Cooper - Eloquent Rage: A Black Feminist Discovers Her Superpower — in conversation with Damon Young

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, February 21, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

When mainstream culture stereotypes the anger of Black women as ugly or destructive, or when it dismisses “sassy” Black women by laughing them off, it does so because it knows this Black female rage is powerful. In this passionate manifesto, Cooper, co-founder of the Crunk Feminist Collective and recipient of the Black Feminist Rising Award from Black Women’s Blueprint and the Newswomen’s Club of New York, draws on examples from Serena Williams to Michelle Obama to her own grandmother to show how rage can fuel both political and personal accomplishments. Reminding us that 94% of Black women did not vote for Trump, Cooper exhorts all Black women to claim the anger they have rightfully earned and speak out against injustice of all kinds. Cooper will be in conversation with Damon Young, editor-in-chief of VerySmartBrothas.
