Black Folks Dinner # 15

BFD 15: ROLL CALL POTLUCK

--//-->> BRING A DISH TO SHARE <<--\\--

In the times we're living in it's increasingly critical that our community unites in life-affirming ways that strengthen our dignity and struggle and enhance our cultural technology and collective power. 

In a city self-proclaiming "progress" while devaluing and underserving Black lives, we've gotta converge and conspire like our lives, our children's lives, and our grandchildren's lives depend upon it - because they do. 

Black Folks Dinner Seattle is a step on that path - a watering hole along the journey to a just, thriving, and self-determined destination - for all who identify within the Black & African diaspora.** 

Our agenda is simple and intentional: 
1: feed and be fed
2: see and be seen
3: love all black bodies*

We come together every month (or couple months) to connect over a potluck dinner and kick it. 

SAVE THE DATE & PREP A PLATE
SEE YOU SOON!!!

*BFD is a place to love all black bodies. We have zero tolerance for transphobia, sexism, islamophobia, homophobia, ableism, colorism, etc. If you're out of integrity with these values, BFD isn't for you. 
**BFD is an affinity event for Black/African/MixedRace folks ONLY. We love and value our legit allies and look forward to converging in other shared spaces. If you have any questions or concerns, or you'd like to contribute an in-kind or monetary donation to support us, please contact Barbara Jefferson.
