Event Description:

“The Third World Women’s Alliance and Intersectionality”

Vani Kannan, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor, Department of English

The Third World Women’s Alliance was a multiracial coalition of Black, Latinx, Asian, Indigenous and Arab women that grew out of the civil rights/Black Power movements. The group maintained active chapters in NYC and the Bay Area during the 1970s, engaged in a range of activities including political education and cultural events, and published the newspaper Triple Jeopardy: Racism Imperialism Sexism. In this talk, I discuss the Alliance’s foundational work in developing what we know today as intersectionality.
