Slide from the talk, taken from the “Top of the World” music video.

I’m knee-deep into the Knight Fellowship (more on that in October) so I’ve been scarce around here lately. But I did want to post about some upcoming events, since I love meeting Racializens in the world.

November 8

Smith College
Northampton, MA 01063

I’m the keynote speaker for Otelia Cromwell Day, and will presenting a talk and a workshop, loosely structured around the situation that led to the excellent Pearls and Cashmere campaign.

Keynote–Against Pearl Clutching: Rebels, Renegades, and Critical Resistance

A look at social rebellion and historical revision through the lens of pop culture. Pearls and Cashmere, campus racism, and the politics of exclusion will be discussed.

Workshop–Bridging the Gaps: Solidarity Beyond Clichés

This workshop will focus on reading, journaling, and partner exercises designed to explore the difficulties in creating broadly inclusive spaces and creating frameworks and language that will allow for the formation of lasting coalitions.

    The title slide of a pile of prone women needs a little better explanation. Are we outraged by this image or using these bodies to get attention for the talks?
