Description

Anti-Blackness is deeply ingrained within our colonial, white supremacist society; therefore, if we are not committed to de-centering whiteness and actively working towards racial justice, we will continue to benefit from and remain complicit in anti-Blackness, including but not limited to our intimate relationships with Black people. In this presentation, we will examine how the interweaving of ableism and racial oppression effect the ways we initiate and negotiate sex and relationships with Black folks.
