Tonight! Sinister Wisdom 124: Deeply Held Beliefs

Sinister Wisdom 124: Deeply Held Beliefs published Spring 2022

Sinister Wisdom 124: Deeply Held Beliefs Spiritual/Political Activism of Lesbian Feminists in the South brings together the sixth and last issue of stories collected by the Southern Lesbian Feminist Activist Herstory Project (SLFAHP). Many of these stories show the intersection of spirituality and religion with politics and social justice movements in the South. In the 1960s, the South became the crucible for civil rights activism that developed and fed the lesbian-feminist activism of the last decades of the twentieth century. Throughout Southern states, lesbian-feminists were leaders in many kinds of social justice activism that often intersected with the religious and spiritual activism that was taking place in the women’s movement all over the country. This final issue of the series of issues curated by the Southern Lesbian Feminist Activist Herstory Project explores spiritual paths, expressed through both traditional religious practices and creative work led by spirit, and political action guided by deeply held beliefs in social justice, the divine feminine, and commitment to preserving and defending Mother Earth.
