Gender Talk: Women in the Struggle with Lenora Knowles
November 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST
Lenora R. Knowles is a Baltimore-based community organizer and organic intellectual. In today’s talk, she thinks about the ways in which women of color organizers of the past and present have negotiated self and community in the context of grassroots organizing and social movement building. Knowles draws from her original research on the coalitional politics an world building and African diasporic and Latina organizers of the 1960s and 1970s, and reflects on her work with the Village of Love and Resistance, a Black-led collective organizing that is for healing and community control of land and housing in East Baltimore.
