Tamika D. Mallory: The Women's March on Washington
Time Out says
Listen to the legendary activist in conversation with journalist Gabrielle Jackson
This burning clarion call from lifelong civil rights activist Tamika D Mallory was an impassioned highlight of the 2017 Antidote festival.
A woman who lives her beliefs and pounds the pavement to affect change, she joined the Reverend Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at the tender age of 15. After she went on to work with the Obama administration on gun control legislation, the future looked bright. And then you-know-who seized the presidency. Undaunted, Mallory became the National co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington.
She joined journalist Gabrielle Jackson, and their fascinating discussion of racial politics, resistance and women’s liberation feels every bit as relevant today as the #Metoo movement and Black Lives Matter conversation gather pace around the globe.
