Radical Kinship Series

Since 2020, CRG’s Arts & Humanities Initiative has curated and hosted the Radical Kinship Series. 

The Radical Kinship Series brings together scholars and artists working in various media (visual arts, literature) into conversations to discuss how their art imagines decolonial futures in multiple contexts, including safety and anti-Asian violence, Black trans futures, African identity in Mexico, and abolition from indigenous, queer Black migrant, and trans perspectives.
