The Combahee River Collective, a path-breaking group of radical black feminists, was one of the most important organizations to develop out of the antiracist and women’s liberation movements of the 1960s and 70s. In this collection of essays and interviews edited by activist-scholar Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, founding members of the organization and contemporary activists reflect on the legacy of its contributions to Black feminism and its impact on today’s struggles.

Join us in the Rare Book Room as Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor discusses her collection and the black feminist movement with Sarah Leonard, senior editor at The Nation and co-editor of The Future We Want: Radical Ideas for a New Century.

— Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor writes and speaks on Black politics, social movements, and racial inequality in the United States. She is the author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation and the editor of How We Get Free: Black Feminism and the Combahee River Collective. Her writing has been featured in the New York Times, the Guardian, Souls, Culture and Society, Jacobin, New Politics, In These Times, Black Agenda Report, Ms., International Socialist Review, and many other publications. She is assistant professor in the department of African American Studies at Princeton University.

Sarah Leonard works at the intersection of old and new left-wing publications in New York City. She is senior editor at The Nation, and a contributing editor to the storied political quarterly Dissent and to The New Inquiry, a popular online magazine of criticism. She has co-edited two books: Occupy!: An OWS-Inspired Gazette (Verso, 2011) with literary magazine n+1, and The Future We Want: Radical Solutions for the 21st Century (Metropolitan, 2016). Her writing about feminism, work, and technology has been widely published. She lives in New York City.
