Join us for a curator-led tour with the librarian Mimosa Shah of the exhibition Rewrite, Organize, Remix: Visions of Feminist Organizing, on view in the Lia and William Poorvu Gallery at the Schlesinger Library.

Shouts of struggle echo through the Schlesinger Library’s collections. Rewrite, Organize, Remix: Visions of Feminist Organizing presents the dynamic stories of groups that mobilized to name and challenge injustice. In the words of the African American feminist poet Pat Parker, revolution is ongoing: “It’s not neat or pretty or quick. It is a long, dirty, painful process.” Over generations, community organizers, artists, students, and thinkers have come together to voice their opposition to oppression, raising banners high for liberation. Rewrite, Organize, Remix illustrates how people convened, learned about, and articulated unique terminologies to define their selves and experiences, and created networks of allies for economic support and social capital. 

An additional tour will be available on October 3, 2024.

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study gratefully acknowledges the Helen Blumen and Jan Acton Fund for Schlesinger Library Exhibitions, which is supporting this exhibition.

Free and open to the public.
