Black Feminism and the Practice of Care

November 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm

A one-day symposium on black women’s care, wellness, and healing presented by the UC Consortium for Black Studies in California. This event explores the relationship between individual practices of care and care as an investment in communities (particularly those haunted by precarity and disposability), and reimagines care (and harm and depletion) as emerging not just from late capitalist phenomena like stress and work burn-out, but also from racist institutions, historical violence, structural neglect, and familial wounds.

Closing Reception will be held from 4:30 PM – 5:30 PM

Keynote Speakers:

  • Honor Ford-Smith, York University
  • Beverly Hanson, Sistren Theater Collective


Judith Casselberry (Bowdoin College), Stephanie Hicks (University of Michigan), Jessica Johnson (Johns Hopkins University), Courtney Marshall (Phillips Exeter Academy), Jessica Millward (UC Irvine), LaKisha Simmons (University of Michigan), Jasmine Syedullah (Vassar College), SA Smythe (UC Irvine), Terrion Williamson (University of Minnesota), Tiffany Willoughby-Herard (UC Irvine)


Erica Ball (Occidental College), Marne Campbell (Loyola Marymount University), Imani Johnson (UC Riverside)

Co-Sponsored by:

  • UCLA Division of Social Sciences
  • UCLA Department of Gender Studies
  • Ralph J. Bunche Center for African American Studies
