We Are Assata's Daughters


 

we are Assata's Daughters

Assata's Daughters is a grassroots, intergenerational collective of radical Black women located in the city of Chicago who love and support each other. We come together under the shared respect, love, and power of Assata Shakur as Black feminists and organizers. Our program seeks to create and hold space for dialogue, affirmation, and the exploration of the different forms of Black women’s empowerment and self-determination. We help connect our members to the current Black Lives Matter movement and support their presence and participation in those spaces and events, including rallies, marches, actions, panels, and more.

Who We Are


 

 

"It is our duty to fight for our freedom.

It is our duty to win.

We must love each other and support each other.

We have nothing to lose but our chains."

- Assata Shakur

WE ARE POWER

Inspired by the Radical Monarchs, Assata’s Daughters was started to hold a necessary space for dialogue, celebration, and for exploration of the different forms of Black women’s empowerment and self-determination. 

A necessary space that protects, cherishes, and fights for the humanity of Black women. A necessary space that affirms all Black women along the gender spectrum. A necessary space that rejects respectability politics. A necessary space that resists racism, as well as sexism, adultism, heteronormativity, transphobia, and all types of oppression we experience as Black women living intersectional lives.

Quite simply, we aim to support young Black women’s leadership and participation within the Black Lives Matter movement: Unapologetically Black, young, radical women. 

Through this dedication, we create art, we protest, we sing, we heal, we build, we love, and we come together to lead and incite resistance.
