This is a past event
February 23, 2022 - 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm (already occurred)

This salon is the first in a series of events throughout the spring semester exploring Black queer life and futures showcasing research, activism, and art in Black queer diaspora studies. The series, emerging from a CHI Research Seminar, considers the possibilities of blackness and queerness amidst our ‘reemergence’ from COVID-19 and our ongoing navigation of cultures of turbulence and inequalities. It keenly asks what speculative futures are possible where Black queer and trans life and happiness are central to the project of society, and what do we need in the present to make these futures possible? The salon features Paul Joseph López Oro (Smith College) and CHI Fellow Watufani Poe.
