Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jasmin Young, “She stood there by him with a gun”: Mabel Williams and the Philosophy of Armed Resistance  

Time: 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. 

Location: Online Webinar

In this talk, Dr. Young uses the writings and activism of Mabel Williams, a southern activist from North Carolina, to discuss the philosophy of armed resistance. As an activist during the Civil Rights movement, Mabel Williams criticized the dominant ideology of the movement: nonviolence. She also practiced armed resistance when white vigilante violence and police repression threatened the lives of activists. This talk interrogates the gendering of armed resistance and reveals the complex set of struggles between Black men and women about Black self-defense.
