We will look into the past, present, and future of women of color feminism to understand how new tools in a digital era can offer both potential progress and traps for organizing. Drawing from the work of Andrea Smith, Angela Davis, and Audre Lorde, women of color feminism needs to fight back against weaponized identity politics, settler colonialism, and anti-blackness in order to truly lead to evolutionary movements. Social media has been a tool for marginalized communities to fight for racial justice. Different techniques and tools will be covered.
