Video: 11 Year Old Feminist and Collective Member, Miss Mason, Talking Elementary Feminisms

Elementary Feminisms: Conceived by 11-year old Collective member Mason Casper-Milam, Elementary Feminism will explore the role of young feminists in the movement and also work to engage and foster feminisms and other social justice work in K-12 classrooms. First-year college student Dylan McCann will partner with Mason in facilitating EF.

In Mason’s words, “Elementary feminism is a program that should encourage kids, especially girls, in school to talk about and discuss feminism and politics in the world right now. I hope this program will make things better by encouraging kids to come out about their feelings. I feel the challenges are abusive parents, bullying, and kids who are LGBTQ. People need to come out with it, in my opinion, because if people decide to feel open, it will spread and soon we won’t have as much hatred maybe, in elementary schools and middle schools.”

  • Remembering and Honoring Toni Cade Bambara Sanchez

    Sonia Sanchez: What are we pretending not to know today? The premise as you said, my sister, being that colored people on planet earth really know everything there is to know. And if one is not coming to grips with the knowledge, it must mean that one is either scared or pretending to be stupid.

    They say you had the eye; they say you saw
    into people. They say you came before as shaman
    or bruja and returned as priestess; they say you were
    stonebreaker. But for me, you were a big sister
    feeling for a lonely brother with no language
    to lament, and you gave me more days, and
    more days. Yes, they could have called you
    Grace, Bambara; they could have called you that.
