Hi, I'm Lisa, convener/founder
of Black Women Stitch

I love to sew! I am also a scholar/academic, specializing in African American literature and culture. After harrowing experiences with racist terror attacks in Charlottesville, Virginia, I decided to build a Black feminist liberation space of care that celebrates the creative lives of Black women, girls, and femmes. That’s how Black Women Stitch came to life: a combination of my sewing knowledge, academic vocation, and activist training.

BWS has created a true community. It’s a safe and welcoming space to connect with like-minded and like-hearted individuals who share a love of sewing and crafting.

This show is very important! It helps in so many ways. It helps to connect with concept of community and building resilience. In addition, it is humorous. In the times that we live, we need a podcast like this.
