This section was formed in 2001 to present a panel of papers on African American women’s activism in Madagascar at the Third International Conference on Women in Africa & the African Diaspora. The section is an advisory body for Women’s History Month celebrations and a supplemental support of projects related to African and American women activists. One such project was the support of activities linked to African American women quilters that included receptions and travel for LOC students to an exhibit in Jackson, Mississippi.
