Join the BCRW Social Justice Institute Residents La Vaughn Belle, Mariame Kaba, and CeCe McDonald for a discussion of their work as artists, organizers, scholars, and visionaries responding to violence. We will hear about different approaches to addressing violence that manifests in archives and built environments, in state systems and logics, and in interpersonal relationships. Centering Black trans and non-trans women, girls, and femmes, the Residents’ work intervenes on the legacies and ongoing effects of colonialism and slavery, tears open the wide and tangled net of criminalization, and builds transformative, survivor-led responses to interpersonal harm. This conversation will welcome questions and contributions from the audience, including seasoned and emerging activists, artists, students, and scholars in these fields.
