For those in/around Seattle this Saturday, May 26, I’ll be speaking briefly about Black breastfeeding. The Black feminist library is inaugurating a series called Black Women Doing, and appropriately we’re starting with Anthropology.
Below are the details and images.
Anthropology is a branch of social science that looks at all aspects of human life. Given its history of helping create race, racism and other hierarchies, it’s no surprise that today few people of African descent practice this field of study; those who have, often used anthropology to create better societies. Through mini presentations and activities, come learn about and celebrate Black women in anthropology. We’ll explore history and the current work of some local Black women anthropologists, including Native American archaeology, sexual identity and gender fluidity in Africa, breastfeeding in the American south and more.
GAMES & ACTIVITIES!
FREE, Family Friendly, & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
