Celebrating Black Girls in Liberatory Spaces

This cross-disciplinary panel explores the spatial fissures and possibilities for Black girls. We engage questions of liberation, celebration, and violation that shape the lived experiences and perspectives of Black girls living in the 21st century. It is here where we depart from static categories of who girls are, where they live, and the type of access they may have at their disposal. Instead, we share and engage conversation to illustrate the distinct vulnerabilities Black girls face based on where they live, learn, and love to inform how they subvert, resist, and sabotage systemic violences and erasure.
