Broadside: Tressie McMillan Cottom

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

10 Nov 2019

Broadside is the new feminist ideas festival from the Wheeler Centre. Over the weekend of 9 and 10 November at Melbourne Town Hall, Broadside will present two days of unabashedly feminist programming, spotlighting a remarkable line-up of international and local speakers, and delivering a powerfully feminist agenda.

With Thick, Tressie McMillan Cottom delivered a treatise on beauty, media, money, misogyny and race, a searing analysis animated by the ‘radical idea, [that] black women are rational and human’.

An award-winning sociologist, professor and author described as ‘transgressive, provocative, and brilliant’ by her Hear to Slay co-host Roxane Gay, McMillan Cottom works her way through politics, history, sociology and culture with critical dexterity and unapologetic force.

In conversation with Aminatou Sow.
