Centuries of colonialism, enslavement, genocide, and imperialism has made Black people, especially those of us who are trans and queer, vulnerable to de-humanizing structures that make “home” contentious places for us. We are a people who are constantly being displaced - from our bodies, our lands, our safe spaces, our communities, our agency, our humanity, and ultimately from our health. This DHM series is a home and a community where Black folks can be in conversation and in movement around liberatory practices of decolonizing ourselves and society. Through dialogues, storytelling, performances, and visual arts, we create a shared space to root ourselves in our ancestry, with the ultimate goal of charting a path of liberation into ourselves and reclaiming our health.
Below are some of the current and past gathering circles within this series.
