AAPF: Her Dream Deferred

At the end of each March, in honor of Women’s History Month and the UN’s International Decade for People of African Descent, AAPF hosts #HerDreamDeferred, a weeklong series of activities focused on elevating the crisis facing Black women and girls.

AAPF has hosted Her Dream Deferred to amplify the voices and narratives of Black women and girls. The week long programming challenges the narrative by hosting dialogues that not only speak to the harms that women and girls of color face but also the tools to dismantle those structural barriers that plague them in their homes, schools, and communities.


Monday, March 28th: the first event— a community screening of the documentary ON THESE GROUNDS and a talkback with the film’s producers, participants, and youth activists? We’ll start the screening at 5pm ET, and the talkback will begin immediately after, at 6pm ET.

The talkback discussion will feature Vivian Anderson (documentary participant and founder of Every Black Girl), Niya Kenny (documentary participant and member of Every Black Girl), Shandrea Murphy-Washington (AAPF) and Alexa Harmon-Thomas (Represent Justice). The conversation will provide an opportunity for us to center Black women’s voices as they share their responses to the documentary and their own personal testimonies of police violence, punishment and pushout in schools.
