In this groundbreaking and important book, Danielle McGuire traces the roots of the Civil Rights Movement directly back to campaigns waged in defense of Black womanhood against sexual violence. For this episode of the Lit Review, we sat down with our friend, mentor, and inspiration, Mariame Kaba, to talk through the details and significance of this repressed herstory. Mariame is an organizer, educator, writer, and curator. Her work focuses on ending violence, dismantling the prison industrial complex, and supporting youth leadership development. She is the founder and director of Project NIA, a grassroots organization with a mission to end youth incarceration. After over 20 years of living and organizing in Chicago, she recently moved back to her hometown of New York City. Find her on twitter at @prisonculture
