Black+Queer+Human: A Conversation is a one day symposium that attends to the present urgency of critical conversations from a queer perspective on black life and its complexity across space, place and time.

Black+Queer+Human foregrounds and is deeply invested in pushing the parameters of how black politics, culture, and everyday life - based on gender, sexuality, queerness, and class are experienced diasporically.

Bringing together scholars from different vantage points this symposium aims to offer alternative ways to re-imagine freedom, desire and pleasure, as a response to anti-blackness and state-violence.
