Blk Grrrl Book Fair

Blk Grrrl Book Fair

  • The Blk Grrrl Book Fair combines the worlds of feminism, film, visual arts, and literary arts. It is being planned with a collaboration of feminist and literary art groups. It is inclusive of all genders, races, sexual orientations and generations. We have women curators who are in their 70s and women curators who are in their 20s. It is actively anti-­racist, anti­-homophobic, anti­-misogynist, anti­-ageist and anti-­ableist. The focus is feminism. Our belief is that the freedom of women, the most oppressed class, even within socially and economically oppressed groups, is the key to the liberation of all people. Women are underrepresented in the arts and publishing. This event will correct that. The Blk Grrrl Book Fair will be a demonstration of what inclusivity looks like.
