A free life
Ain’t I a Woman? was the title of a speech by former slave Sojourner Truth in 1851. Female slaves were stripped of their personal dignity twice over – both as woman and because they were in bondage.
The fight for recognition as a woman and as black is a red thread running through Against White Feminism by Pakistani-American lawyer Rafia Zakaria. And the role female slaves played in the anti-slavery movement is the theme of the graphic memoir Wake by lawyer and historian Rebecca Hall.
How does this history find expression in today’s USA? The two authors meet Anine Bråten for a conversation about struggle, courage and liberation.
The conversation will be in English.
