"The Global Kitchen: International Perspective of Women's Unwaged Work"
Selma James, the legendary feminist, anti-racist activist, and thinker presents her new collection that brings together six decades of international movement-building and critical thought on unwaged labor.
The Hull-House Museum is honored to host Ms. James, a visionary thinker and radical activist. The vastness of Ms. James' work connects contemporary movements like the modern SlutWalk and domestic worker labor legislation to decades-long examinations of unions, prisons, welfare, Marxism, and anti-Zionism. Her scope is international, linking struggles in United States to revolutions and resistance in Venezuela, Haiti, and Tanzania. The depth and breadth of Ms. James' reading and conversation will have wide appeal across communities and campaigns. We encourage you to join us for this inspiring conversation.
This event launches a series of programs connected to the upcoming exhibit, Unfinished Business: 21st Century Home Economics, opening December 10, 2012 at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
Praise for Sex, Race and Class - The Perspective of Winning, A Selection of Writings 1952-2011
“In this incisive and necessary collection of essays and talks spanning over five decades, Selma James reminds us that liberation cannot be handed down from above. This is feminism that truly matters.”
-Dr. Alissa Trotz, Associate Professor of Women and Gender Studies, Director of Caribbean Studies, University of Toronto
