Combahee Survival (Movement) Revival

MOVEMENT REVIVAL!

Vision & Purpose

In 1977 a group of black, lesbian, socialist, feminist writers and thinkers created a groundbreaking statement of their beliefs that made a new intersectional political analysis thinkable. The work of the Combahee River Collective survives everywhere where organizers, artists and visionaries insist that “the major systems of oppression are interlocking.” Today, right here, a crew of young troublesome queer black feminists are invoking this statement in a project designed to celebrate and instigate a survival/revival process for diverse movements of radical and progressive people everywhere.
