Sydney Writers Festival: Brittney Cooper - Eloquent rage

  • carriageworks Sydney (map)

In Brittney Cooper’s world, neither mean girls nor ‘fuckbois’ ever win, but “homegirls emerge as heroes”. A professor of Women’s and Gender Studies and Africana Studies, co-founder of the Crunk Feminist Collective and Cosmopolitan columnist, Brittney reminds us that while black women’s anger is often caricatured as ugly and destructive, it is a powerful source of energy and strength. The Eloquent Rage author talks with Santilla Chingaipe about how feminism and faith in one’s own superpowers can help turn things right side up.
