The More You Know

The More You Know is a series that celebrates students of color who have a thesis, capstone, or any other culminating project of their work at Amherst. We center scholarship that focuses on racial and ethnic studies, culture, and identity. This program consists of a brief presentation followed by a Q&A session and reception with snacks.

Black queer femmes in fros

Love Black Love

Join the QRC in a conversation centering Black queer femmes and Black queer relationships. Using love in all aspects as a unifying tool, Love Black Love will center various forms of relationships and how do Black queer folk maintain and challenge our loving relationships in spite of racism and cis-heteronormativity.
