The Combahee River Collective, a revolutionary group of radical Black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of movements of the 1960s and '70s. In 1977, the group published the Combahee River Collective Statement, which was one of the earliest explorations of the intersecting nature of multiple oppressions, including racism and sexism. Demita Frazier, Beverly Smith, and Barbara Smith were the primary authors of the Combahee River Collective Statement. Theorizing the concept of multiple oppressions, critiquing both sexual oppression in the Black community and racism within the wider feminist movement, they sought to destroy the related evils of capitalism, imperialism, and patriarchy. This panel will include original Combahee authors Barbara Smith and Demita Frazier as well as activists Barbara Ransby, Sharon Smith, and Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor.
