Dara Cooper | “Black Feminist Freedom Dreams: Food Sovereignty and the Urgency of Intersectional Movement Building”

April 9, 2019

What will it take to truly transform the food system? What is ultimately our north star within the food movement? During this presentation, food movement activist and organizer Dara Cooper, National Organizer for the National Black Food and Justice Alliance, calls on the brilliance of Black feminist theory and praxis to ground us in imagining a path forward towards food sovereignty. Leaning on historical and contemporary examples, we will explore why race, class and gender is essential to understanding our work towards justice in the food system. We will also explore how we understand food justice and food sovereignty in the context of our ultimate goal—freedom.
