Black women don’t often get their roses in the history books, relegated instead into background roles. But for us to achieve liberation as a people, we must understand the need for collective action to achieve liberation. Dr. Ashley Farmer can attest to this need. An accomplished historian and author of the pioneering book “Remaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era,” Dr. Ashley Farmer spearheads this powerful conversation about Black women's role in the Black Power movement, and the invaluable role Black women played and play in paving the way to Black liberation.
