Post for 9-6-2022 Radical Kinship Series

4 - 5:00 PM PST | Radical Kinship Series

black god mother this body": Book Release and Author Interview

Zoom Webinar


Join the Center for Race and Gender for a Zoom reading and celebration of Dr. Raina J. León’s poetry collection black god mother this body (Black Freighter Press, 2022). Dr. León’s collection integrates biomimicry, technology, afrofuturist practices and afrosurrealist revelations, and generational engagement across human and nonhuman worlds to boldly encounter the horrors of (digital) lynchings in the murders of black and brown peoples in spirit and in body while also uplifting new radical dreams. In this zoom gathering, the poet will read from her work, share words on the evolution of the collection and engage in a live interview with poet-scholar Alán Pelaez Lopez.

The Radical Kinship Series is curated and hosted by CRG’s Arts and Humanities Initiative Research Scholar, Alán Pelaez Lopez.  This series is sponsored by the Center for Race and Gender, the Multicultural Community Center, and the Gender Equity Resource Center (GenEq).

The Aftermath of Dobbs: Putting the Movement for Reproductive Justice in Conversation with the Fight for Trans Justice

4 - 5:15 PM - Talk
5:15  - 6 PM - Breakouts
Zoom Webinar

What can the fight for reproductive justice learn from the struggle for trans justice? What are the costs of the failure of those movements to be in close conversation with one another? What should we make of claims in the New York Times and elsewhere that gender-neutral descriptions of reproductive rights “erase women”?  Khiara M. Bridges (Professor of Law, UC Berkeley School of Law) and Chase Strangio (Deputy Director for Transgender Justice, ACLU’s LGBT & HIV Project) will address these questions and more. 

Join us for Bridges and Strangio in conversation with Russell Robinson (Walter Perry Johnson Professor of Law at Berkeley Law, and Faculty Director of the Center on Race, Sexuality & Culture) and Leti Volpp (Robert D. and Leslie Kay Raven Professor of Law in Access to Justice at Berkeley Law, and Director of the Center for Race & Gender). 

Following the talk, we invite you to engage in conversation about ways to be more directly involved in the struggle for reproductive justice -- online via Zoom breakout rooms and in person at watch parties.

Hosted by the Center on Race, Sexuality & Culture at Berkeley Law, and the Center for Race & Gender.  Co-sponsored by the Department of Gender and Women's Studies and the Gender Equity Resource Center (GenEq).

Join the Center for Race and Gender for a Zoom screening of "Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico" (21 mins), and Q&A with director, Ebony Bailey. The jamaica flower and tamarind are iconic ingredients in Mexico, but their history comes from a place much further away. In Jamaica y Tamarindo: Afro Tradition in the Heart of Mexico, we meet five people to explore African heritage in Mexico City, an identity that goes beyond the color of one's skin. Join us for a special screening and conversation about race, migration, gender, and colonialism in Mexico.
