Reimagining Gender for a World Without Violence: Art and Storytelling Led by Black Organizers

Thursday, 3 October 2019

Art that exemplifies a positive counter-story to the lived reality of violence has the power to ignite conversations, connections, and visions of a liberated world without violence. This is especially powerful for communities who, due to historical and contemporary oppression, experience the highest rates of violence and are silenced or ignored in the mainstream movement to end violence. Join the Resonance Network and PreventConnect on this web conference to learn how Black organizers with the Wakanda Dream Lab have used popular culture like “Black Panther (2018),” and various expressions of art and storytelling to heal and activate for ending gender-based and racial violence. Presenters on this web conference will share highlights from the upcoming anthology “Black Freedom Beyond Borders: Re-imagining Gender in Wakanda.” The anthology is inspired by and honors the lives of Black, brown, and indigenous queer and trans women who have died and experienced violence.
