A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: Thursday, January 21, 5-7:30PM
Where: Capitol Hill Branch Library, 425 Harvard Ave E
Seattle Black Feminists will be screening NO! The Rape Documentary at the Capitol Hill Library. NO! is by Black feminist lesbian and rape survivor, Aishah Simmons, and it highlights sexual violence against Black women and the inexcusable silence around this issue. The film features testimonials from Black women rape survivors, and from violence prevention advocates, theologians, sociologists, historians, anthropologists, and other leading scholars and human rights activists to provide an interdisciplinary context with which to examine sexual violence in African-American communities. They also explore how rape is used as a weapon of homophobia.
The 60-minute film will be followed by a discussion.
