1st Black Brazilian Women Intellectuals International Conference: Quilombo as Global Black Solidarity in the Past, Present and Future

This event sheds light on the different generations of Black Brazilian women as producers of knowledge and agents of liberation. Despite intersectional oppressions, Black Brazilian women have a long and rich tradition in the national and international struggle against racism and sexism and for social justice. They forge innovative concepts of citizenship, democracy and rights, which expands the decolonizing reach of the African diaspora. However, this legacy remains invisible both in Brazil and abroad. 

As we celebrate Brazil's Black History Month and Kilomba's anniversary, we invite you to join us in this series of multilingual events to learn more about the diverse contributions of Black Brazilian women to the understanding and transformation of society through their knowledge, memories, affect, bodies and practices, making the Quilombo a real practice until today.

Kilomba Collective is a collective dedicated to centering the perspective and realities of Black Brazilian people, especially Black women and girls in their multiple identities, in the international scenario, connecting with other Black women's movements in the African Diaspora. We do so by developing advocacy, community building, and international solidarity actions on issues around social justice, gender equality, and human rights.
