#HappyInternationalWomensDay Black Women Revolutionary Nationalist Exist ( Revolution Without Women Ain’t Happening)

New Afrikan women from all walks of life employed a range of political strategies and tactics in their efforts to secure universal black liberation. Through various mediums including journalism, media, and overseas travel, many New Afrikan women activists and intellectuals fought to advance anticolonial, antiimperialism and Pan-Africanist politics. Significantly, these women helped to sustain black nationalist politics, endorsing racial pride, African heritage, black political and economic autonomy, and Pan-Africanism during the tumultuous years of World War. In the postwar era black nationalist women in the United States and in other parts of the diaspora amplified their efforts to obtain human rights.

Moreover, they continued to build transnational alliances, recognizing that their struggles for black rights on the local and national levels were deeply connected with struggles for freedom all across the globe. As many of these women grew older in age, some with failing health, they actively mentored a younger generation of black women who would be ready to carry on the work in their physical absence. The global visions of freedom black nationalist women promoted in their writings and speeches during the 1940s remained salient in the decades to follow—no doubt providing a source of inspiration for black activists and intellectuals during the 1950s and 1960s.

Against the backdrop of the modern Civil Rights and Black Power movements in the United States, rapid decolonization in Africa, and a surge of liberation movements in Latin America, the Caribbean, and across the globe, these women continued to build transnational alliances and employed a range of strategies and tactics in their struggles for civil and human rights. Moreover, veteran black nationalist women’s particular focus on black emigration and their unwavering interest in Liberia marked a significant departure from the priorities of several black nationalist groups of the period. Rather than endorsing black emigration, black nationalist groups such as the Nation of Islam (NOI) and the Republic of New Afrika (RNA) advocated territorial separatism—the establishment of autonomous black communities within the United States. While black activists in these groups sought to advance economic self-sufficiency and political self-determination, they lacked the strong inclination to relocate to West Africa. Instead, they set out to empower black communities through various means, including religious expression, armed self-defense, and revolutionary nationalism. – Keisha N Blain
