September 12: But Some of Us are Brave: Black Sisterhood and Solidarity Across Cultures

The National Museum of African Art opens the first of three panels in Women of Color: The Power of Protest series with the panel— But Some of Us are Brave: Black Sisterhood and Solidarity Across Cultures. Panelists address concepts of sisterhood and solidarity as sources of power across cultures, communities, and color lines. The panel emphasizes that the African Diaspora is comprised of multiple complex communities. Drawing from historical figures within these communities, the panelists will discuss specific examples of (s)heroism and their implications for our time.
