The Combahee River Collective Statement

Coming to an UBUNTU meeting near you: printouts of the groundbreaking, revolutionary and far from perfect statement by the Combahee River Collective in 1977. This is the founding document for the intersectional analyses of oppression that we develop and deconstruct and redevelop today.

Anyway...before I burst into a praise poem...this is the spot to post your thoughts about the document while and after you read. Post a comment!

love,
alexis

Hey Lex!

I have posted the statement over at the main blog & invited folks to stop by and join the conversation round the kitchen table. I have to run now, but will be back to comment later today - thank you, thank you for bringing this brave work to the forefront of our minds! Much love -

Roots and Wings: The Combahee River Collective Statement

Lately, we have been reading together the Combahee River Collective Statement. It is for us: a starting point, a vision, an inspiration, a model, and a guide as we here in Durham today grow and stretch into becoming a community that resists and transforms the conditions of sexual oppression. Alexis writes, “This is the founding document for the intersectional analyses of oppression that we develop and deconstruct and redevelop today.” Feel free to stop by and join our conversation about it At the Kitchen Table.
