Kandaka(t): “Strong woman”, title for queens and queen mothers of the ancient African Kingdom of Kush, also called Nubia and Ethiopia. They were known as Nubian warrior queens, queen regents and ruling queen mothers, however Sudanese people still refer to strong women as Kandakat today.
In 2019, social media and mainstream politics are working tirelessly to pollute our minds and bodies. In a world rampant with inequality, violence and insecurity, this blog imagines alternative, feministic ways to navigate our various experiences through creative and revolutionary mindfulness. We aim to collect and tell stories, learn, listen, teach and eventually encourage people to open their minds and be more compassionate while looking at the world critically.
The feminist futures we explore and imagine are decolonial and intersectional.
