|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 5:30 pm on Monday, happening 4 times

In “Black on Both Sides,” C. Riley Snorton identifies multiple intersections between blackness and transness from the mid-nineteenth century to present-day anti-black and anti-trans legislation and violence. Drawing on a deep and varied archive of materials, Snorton attends to how slavery and the production of racialized gender provided the foundations for an understanding of gender as mutable.
