for The Church of Black Feminist Thought
After deep study and contemplation of and with the black feminist thinker(s) centered in each gathering, invocations were written and read aloud to call the history, work and spirit of the thinker into our convenings. The portraits drawn by miyuki baker helped us anchor in the lived presence of our teachers.
This publication contains invocations written between 2018-2020 for Black feminist Study convenings in Berkeley, Oakland, Accra, and the transnational space(s) of the digital.
