Black Lesbian Futures

April 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Intergenerational conversations between Black lesbians identifying the past, current moment, and the path toward our collective futures.

Join us to celebrate the publication of Mouths of Rain: An Anthology of Black Lesbian Thought (The New Press, 2021) edited by Briona Simone Jones.

African American lesbian writers and theorists have made extraordinary contributions to feminist theory, activism, and writing. Mouths of Rain, the companion anthology to Beverly Guy-Sheftall’s classic Words of Fire, traces the long history of intellectual thought produced by Black Lesbian writers, spanning the nineteenth century through the twenty-first century.

Featuring: Cheryl Clarke, Briona Simone Jones, Jewelle Gomez, Susana Morris, Sharon Bridgforth, Lisa C. Moore, Cassandra Grant, Shawn(ta) and Smith-Cruz.

This event is co-sponsored by the Lesbian Herstory Archives, Sinister Wisdom Journal, CLAGS: Center for LGBTQ Studies, CUNY, Black Women Radicals, and NYU Libraries.

This event is presented as part of NYUWomxn100, which celebrates the lives, pursuits, innovations, and achievements of womxn of transgender, non-binary, and cisgender experiences. We honor womxn who have been historically overlooked in their pursuits, innovations, and accomplishments across our global communities.
