A Kick in the Belly: Women, Slavery and Resistance with Stella Dadzie

Join author and feminist Stella Dadzie for an online lecture as part of the latest resistance lecture series!

Stella Dadzie is a published writer and feminist historian, best known for The Heart of the Race: Black Women’s lives in Britain which won the 1985 Martin Luther King Award for Literature and was re-published by Verso in 2018 as a Feminist Classic. Her latest book A Kick in the Belly: Women, Slavery & Resistance was published by Verso in October 2020 to much acclaim.

In this exclusive online talk for Fulham Palace Trust, Stella will show how women played a dynamic and distinctly female role in the development of a culture of resistance to slavery. Ranging from rebellions on board ships during the middle passage, to resistance by controlling or limiting their fertility, women’s roles are fascinating and inspirational.
