Join an online discussion with Rebecca Hall, PhD, author of "Wake: The Hidden History of Women-Led Slave Revolts," in which Hall details her search for stories of women warriors who have been left out of history records.
In this conversation she plans to discuss her practice, which she calls “ancestry in progress,” which honors enslaved women’s resistance for an empowered present and imagines resilient Black futures.
