Celebrate Black History Month with Two Separate Virtual Events

This year, Black History month focuses on the importance of Black Health & Wellness.

We acknowledge the legacy of Black scholars, medical practitioners along with the other ways of knowing
(e.g., birthworkers, doulas, midwives, naturopaths, herbalists, etc.) throughout the community.

My Black is Exhausted. Forever in Pursuit of a Racist-Free World Where Hashtags Don't Exist with Dr. Bryan K. Hotchkins

“What is your greatest fear?”

…is the exact question asked of Dr. Hotchkins’ son Osiris in 2012, shortly after the untimely demise of Trayvon Martin. His answer “a hashtag,” is profound in that he considers it (#) an eternal marker of time captured and lost whether celebratory or tragic.

In his new book My Black is Exhausted. Forever in Pursuit of a Racist-free World Where Hashtags Don’t Exist, Dr. Hotchkins eloquently unpacks the arc of a racialized global history, as connected to the present, in order to explain why having an ability to navigate the geographies of racism in the future is a must. 

Join us virtually to hear from Dr. Hotchkins and ask questions.
