Dalit History Month is a participatory radical history project. Our goal is to share the contributions to history from Dalits around the world. We believe in the power of our stories to change the upper caste narratives of our experience as one solely of atrocity into one that is of our own making. Our story may have begun in violence but we continue forward by emphasizing our assertion and resistance. Join the conversation at #DalitHistoryMonth!
