IDEA LAB September 30th, 11:15-12:15  Without an emotional, heartfelt grappling with the source of our own oppression, without naming the enemy within ourselves and outside of us, no authentic, non-hierarchical connection among oppressed groups can take place. - Cherrie Moraga, La Guera

Upheaval Book Club with Victoria Walton

Please be sure to email IDEA Lab for the PDFs and to read them before we begin book club.
In our meeting, we will discuss select pages from the anthology This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color, edited by activists Cherríe Moraga and Gloria E. Anzaldúa. Through this primary text, we will establish the origins of our own beliefs, as we unpack the processes of unlearning mindsets that feed systems of oppression. Each meeting we will read different passages of portions of literature that center on themes of intersectionality and radical leftist liberation movements.
