launching freedom dreams 2016
Black Feminist Future team is excited to provide much needed space for Black feminists to discuss, strategize, and prioritize the current political moment and what it means for those of us who have the lived experience of being a Black woman or girl. Still pumped by the overwhelming and generous reception to the Visioning Salons in 2014- 2015, we knew it was time to hit the road again and create this much needed space, synergy, and opportunity for 2016.
This year the Visioning Salon is called Freedom Dreams: Black Feminist Visioning Our Political Future. This strategy space is one for re-imagining the political landscape and one that centers the dignity, leadership, and vision of Black women and girls. Learn more here!

Black Feminist Future and Betti Ono Gallery are collaborating to create this space on May 11th in Oakland.
About Betti Ono Gallery Betti Ono is an award-winning, experimentally minded space for arts, culture and community in Oakland, California. Through exhibitions, programs and collaborations, we amplify the work of underrepresented artists whose bold, curious and risk-taking creative practice demands attention and challenges the status quo. We value art making as a form and function of activism, self-determination, community transformation and cultural resilience. We lift up the culture of everyday people and focus our core work on participation, accessibility and inclusivity.
