Description

Solutionary Acts: Mobilizing Intersectional [Afro]Futures

Organized by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Department, this interactive workshop, facilitated by Dr. Mel Michelle Lewis, will explore how we mobilize social justice inquiry and intersectional analysis into action. Using an Afrofuturist lens and restorative justice framework, we will call upon the wisdom of Black queer feminist activists, theorists, artists, and luminaries as we create our own solutionary platform for collective liberation.

Dr. Lewis is Director of the Center for Geographies of Justice and Associate Professor and Program Coordinator of Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies and Africana Studies at Goucher College in Baltimore, Maryland. Read Dr. Lewis’ complete bio here.

Light breakfast will be provided! Students interested in attending are encouraged but not required to RSVP at wgsstu@gvsu.edu. This event is co-sponsored by Brooks College Dean’s Office, Brooks College Office of Integrative Learning and Advising, and the African/African American Studies Program.
