In this workshop we will engage the possibility of Black Feminist collective singing using Black Feminist texts as source material and sacred text. We will engage gospel and congregational songs and think critically about the meaning we make when we sing the words. We are reclaiming the resilience tools of our ancestors and elders - in this case song - and using them to meet the needs we have now.
