you're cordially invited to the next church of black feminist thought gathering on Sunday, 11/18/18 from 11am-2pm. this month's black feminist thinker is Patricia Hill Collins.  To RSVP, please email

**thank you for bearing with us through this delay in information. between the present smoke and the coming holiday we wanted to be intentional about when we invited folks into fellowship. If you plan to join us this Sunday please travel with a filtration mask to prevent excessive exposure to harmful particles from the wildfires.

It was wonderful to see folks last month for our study of bell hooks!

*here's what we're envisioning the 3 hours will look like:

First 30 mins//arriving, mingling with food, dancing

Second 30 mins//embodied meditation

Third 30 mins//invocation for this month's theorists & setting the stage

Fourth 30 mins//small group study

Fifth 30 mins//share back/discussion/freewrite

Sixth 30 mins//regrounding

<come when you can//invocation and small group study starts around 12pm>


we want to emphasize that our study group is about engaging with the work of black feminist thinkers in ways that move beyond just reading and writing. so, you are in no way required to read or print anything in advance. that said, we still want to share materials by the thinkers we'll be studying. In the folder we created [Patricia Hill Collins Folder] there are a few essays and several books by her for your enrichment. Feel free to check out the quotes doc of quotes we’re going to study at Church. Below you’ll find a video of Dr. Collins talking about her relationship to the academy and innovative knowledge production (
