Event - UK - In Conversation with Stella Dadzie on Women, Slavery and Resistance

Described as one of the "grandmothers" of Black Feminism in the UK, Stella Dadzie will be discussing her latest book A Kick in the Belly: Women, Slavery and Resistance in conversation with feminist activist Chardine Taylor-Stone. In A Kick in the Belly Dadzie explores how enslaved women found ways to fight back, how "by sustaining or adapting remembered cultural practices, they ensured that the lives of chattel slaves retained both meaning and purpose. This sense of self gave rise to a sense of agency and over time, both their subtle acts of insubordination and their conscious acts of rebellion came to undermine the very fabric and survival of West Indian slavery.'.
